In the mid-August doldrums of the NBA offseason, boredom can sometimes settle in. Free agency and the draft are over, training camp remains a month away, and, for the most part, there’s very little news coming out about most teams. While that isn’t the case for the Cavaliers right now, with all their drama involving Kyrie Irving and LeBron James, for a team like the Raptors, there isn’t much for fans to really get jazzed about right now.
That boredom can sometimes lead to some incredibly creative work to pass the time, as is the case for artist John Mong, who decided he should take every NBA team logo and make it a Raptors logo. The results are pretty incredible, as posted to r/NBA by user bbnexus.
The results are pretty incredible. My personal favorites are the Hawks, Timberwolves, Sixers, and Celtics logos as reimagined by Mong. The Celtics crossover is especially incredible and I, not a Raptors fan in the slightest, would absolutely order a shirt with this logo on it.
You can check out the rest of the full size images of his designs, along with a number of other logo crossover designs that he’s done for other Toronto teams, on his website, but nothing tops that Celtics look.
