But that won't work, since Nike would have copyrighted it for the Jumpman logo.

Curry's jump shot is by far the best choice:

When people make these silhouettes they make the mistake of putting too much detail in. The logo has to look good and read in a range of sizes. Also, no gradients and sans serif fonts only for NBA lettering!

West is fine. Why replace him?

It would be cool if NBA logo was playerless and had many alternate versions such as those posted in this thread.

In all seriousness though, the NBA shouldn't change the logo. Keep the West one.

Jordan is automatically excluded because his likeness is owned by a corporation.

It wouldn't make sense to choose a player that's still playing, although the Dirk logo is outstanding.

Magic and Bird meant the most to the league's history. You really can't seperate the two for logo purposes, so you'd need to change it up some.
