The Portland TrailBlazers are one of the few teams in the NBA that have always had a great team brand and look. They have stayed true to their color scheme or Red, Black, and adding silver as of recent was a great addition.
With this concept, I wanted to try tying Oregon, The Blazers, as well as Oregons MLS team, Portland Timbers, into this design. I think combination of NBA/MLS logos and team names would be interesting and I think the Blazers would be a great team that could pull off that combination if it ever happened.

I based this logo off of the classic Blazers uniforms with the stripes running diagonally across the front. Portland is called "The City of Roses", so I added rose thorns to the stripes to represent the city of Portland.

The redesign focuses on the rose as Portland is called The Rose City, the Blazers play in the Rose Garden (now called the Moda Center apparently), etc. The rose/basketball icon didn’t turn out exactly how I imagined it but I think it fits Portland better than the abstract shape and the futuristic typeface they have now.
