Bikini Basketball League team rips off the SuperSonics logo

By Royce Young | NBA writer

The SuperSonics are basically like a car that's been put up on blocks after being stripped clean. The former Seattle team is in Oklahoma City, and now their logo is in Miami.

The newly founded Bikini Basketball League, a league "for Sexy Athletic Ladies from around the world,” has seven teams: the Atlanta Fleet Angels, the New York Knockouts, the Hollywood Hotties, the Orlando LadyCats, the Los Angeles Ice, the Chicago Desire and the Miami Spice.

The last of which took no shame in completely ripping off the now-defunct Sonics logo.

I'm not an intellectual property lawyer, so I don't really know if that crosses the line of copyright laws or if it's a fair-use thing. (Parody, maybe?)

But this has to be rock-bottom for the Sonics. That famous, iconic logo on a bikini basketball team? The bright side is there's a good chance that logo might not be in use for too long.
