A new era of Dallas Mavericks basketball has arrived.
Mavs.com’s Earl K. Sneed has reported that the team will change its logo for the 2017-18 season, after seeing its streak of three consecutive playoff appearances end.
Prepare to be amazed.
The change comes with Nike taking over as the official on-court apparel provider of the NBA.
The Mavericks did win a championship with the lighter blue back in 2011, but have yet to make it out of the first round since.
And with 39-year-old fashion icon Dirk Nowitzki in the twilight of his illustrious career, you can’t really blame Dallas for trying to spark a new generation of fans.
Reviews to the makeover seem mostly positive thus far.

I dig it. That really light shade of blue was ugly and didn't fit
