Report: Sixers won’t use pedophile looking Ben Franklin logo


Update June 24th 1:30 PM EST: Sixers’ CEO Scott O’Neil passed this along, which obviously means I will be getting Christmas presents with this logo on it.

Just when you thought getting Adam Aron out of the organization would put less of an emphasis on image and stupid gimmicks, we’ve had an off-season full of re-branding ideas. The latest one, is this creepy Ben Franklin secondary logo that surfaced tonight.

According to Jason Wolf of Delaware Online, the Sixers don’t actually plan on using this logo. Thank God.

I did some research of my own, and found that the Sixers used a very similar version of this logo when the FU center hosted the 2002 NBA All-Star game. Somehow, the normal colored basketball makes the logo slightly less creepy.

If the Sixers want to add a creepy secondary logo, then they might as well go all out. Phil E. Moose and his Hugh Hefner robe seem to fit that bill.

As long as his b*tches love him.
