11. Golden State Warriors

Designer: Unknown

Year Logo Introduced: 1969

Employed for just a fleeting moment, the Warriors famous "The City" logo isn't so much successful in graphic integrity as it is in simple assertion. The Warriors became the Golden State's team in 1972, but before then the franchise allowed San Francisco opportunity to claim top status in the Bay Area. A testiment to the logo is the rehashing and reworking of it for the current Warriors uniform. "The City" is universally acknowleged as one of the coolest logos in basketball history.
