NBA Rumors: Atlanta Hawks Might Put 'Pac-Man' Logo On Center Court

Atlanta Hawks fans may potentially see a different look when they enter Philips Arena next season. The team might be considering to alter their home court design by implementing the retro Pac-Man logo on center court.

The news comes after a tweet sent out by Twitter user, and graphic designer, Conrad Burry.

In the tweet that can be seen below, an image is attached which appears to be screenshot from EA Sports’ NBA Live 15. In the image, the Atlanta Hawks’ court looks to have a different look with the old-school Pac-Man logo at halfcourt, rather than the primary Hawk logo.

This would mark a huge change for the Atlanta Hawks as their court has featured the primary Hawk logo (shown on the right) at halfcourt since the 2007-08 season.

The Pac-Man logo was primarily used from 1972-95, something older Atlanta Hawks fans will remember as it was worn by Hawks legends Dominique Wilkins, Spud Webb and Tree Rollins.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Pac-Man logo (seen below), it was re-introduced as a secondary logo during the 2014 NBA Playoffs series between the Atlanta Hawks and Indiana Pacers.Atlanta Hawks

The Hawks were said to be looking to incorporate the new secondary logo into the team since its release. Now, thanks to EA Sports and the Hawks organization, it seems as though the dream of having the Pac-Man logo return may soon be reality.
