NBA All-Star weekend has arrived, though this year all of the main events have been condensed into a one-night affair on Sunday in Atlanta. However, there was one item that still took place on Saturday: commissioner Adam Silver’s annual All-Star press conference.
Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving suggested that Kobe Bryant should be the new logo, and he has plenty of support from both players and fans.
Not so much from the league office, however. Silver pretty thoroughly shot down that idea.
“There are no ongoing discussions” about changing the logo, Silver said. “The logo is iconic. … It doesn’t feel to me that this is the appropriate moment.”
