UPDATE: Mudiay tweeted that this isn’t his logo, which it isn’t. It was just trademarked by the company he’s signed with. If anyone made a mistake, it’s Under Armour, not Mudiay.
Sir, idk where you got that information from @darrenrovell but that is not my logo— Emmanuel Mudiay (@emmanuelmudiay) July 29, 2016
ORIGINAL POST: Emmanuel Mudiay has been an Under Armour client for a couple years, and they recently filed a trademark on a new logo for the young Denver point guard. It had problems.
Under Armour has filed to trademark what looks to be a logo for endorser Emmanuel Mudiay pic.twitter.com/Y6rt1WWswf— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) July 28, 2016
Um ... surely they see it too?
It looks like the Enron logo
It’s not a direct match, but there are some similarities there.
It looks like a swastika
Or, at least, it looks like the middle of a swastika. That’s nooooot a good thing.
It’s not a good logo
Besides those two glaring issues, it looks like it’s straight out of the ‘90s, when every logo felt the need to do that thing where they merged two letters and connected them with a big, sharp typeface. The Wu-Tang Clan can still get away with that because, well, they’re from the ‘90s. Emmanuel Mudiay in the year 2016 cannot.
A trademark doesn’t really mean too much. It definitely doesn’t mean Under Armour will end up using it, especially after people pointing out that it looks like an Enron swastika. It’s amazing that nobody else saw that, either.
