Basketball fans rejoice at nostalgic NBA Finals logo

The NBA Finals logo was released back in April but the recent televised finals have brought the design front-and-centre. And it looks as though basketball fans are chuffed with the new design, which brings back an old element that's perfectly nostalgic (at least, that's the general consensus on Twitter).

But what is this nostalgic element? Well, between the years 1986 to 1995, and 2004 to 2017, the NBA Finals logos featured a script font. The design had been axed for the finals since 2018, but that famous cursive-looking logo has finally been brought back to life. The new (or old) design has everyone so excited I'm considering it for our best logos list.
