Americans Primary Logo
The New Jersey Americans' primary logo has a long and storied history. It began in 1967 when the team was founded as part of the American Basketball Association (ABA). The original logo featured an orange basketball with white stars representing each of the ABA's teams at that time. This iconic design was used until 1976 when it was replaced with a red, white, and blue shield featuring three stars to represent New Jersey's place in professional basketball history.
In 1977, the franchise changed its name to "New York Nets" and adopted a new logo featuring two crossed nets set against an orange background with blue outlines. This design lasted for only one season before being replaced by another classic look: a simple yet bold script lettering spelling out "Nets" across an all-white circle bordered by navy stripes on either side; this is still considered one of their most recognizable logos today!
Finally, after several other iterations over subsequent years - including some more modern designs like those from 2013-14 - they eventually settled on their current look which features two interlocking letters “NJ” within an outlined starburst shape; this symbolizes both unities among fans as well as pride for their home state of New Jersey! All these different logos have come together to create what we now recognize as one unified identity for this proud organization – making them truly unique among professional sports franchises around North America!
