Grizzlies Alternate Logo
The Vancouver Grizzlies were a professional basketball team that played in the NBA from 1995 to 2001. During their time in the league, they had two alternate logos which are still remembered fondly by fans of the team today. The first logo was introduced when the Grizzlies joined the NBA and featured a grizzly bear holding a basketball with an outline of mountains behind it. This logo was used for five seasons until 2000 when it was replaced by another one featuring an updated version of their original mascot, Grizz, dribbling a ball with his tongue sticking out.
The second logo marked significant changes for both design and branding as well as being more modernized than its predecessor; this included replacing some traditional elements such as mountains with abstract shapes like stars or circles to represent movement on court action rather than static imagery. Additionally, Grizz’s eyes were changed from yellow to black which gave him more personality while also making him appear less intimidating and friendlier overall - something that resonated better among younger audiences who were likely watching at home during games broadcasted nationally on television networks such as Fox Sports Net (FSN).
Unfortunately despite these updates neither alternate logo could save them from having one of the worst records during their tenure due largely in part due to bad management decisions made off-court nonetheless these designs remain popular amongst former players & fans alike even after all these years since leaving Vancouver back 2001 - serving not only reminder what once great franchise looked like but also how far sports branding has come over last few decades too!
