Based out of Los Angeles, the American professional basketball team known as the LA Clippers contend in the NBA (National Basketball Association) as one of the Western Conference league’s Pacific Division members. Originally founded in 1970, the Los Angeles Clippers have also been known under other names. From 1970 to 1978 they were known as the Buffalo Braves and from 1978 to 1984, the San Diego Clippers.
A brand-new identity was unveiled by the Los Angeles Clippers in June of 2015. A compass shaped basketball, including the "LAC" club monogram centrally located, is featured in the club's primary logo. Below this emblem, in black, is their wordmark logo. Symbolizing the horizon of the ocean are two curved lines below the wordmark. The club's nautical roots are alluded to through the use of these curved lines.
Official team colors for the Clippers include white, silver, black, blue, and red.
New “away” and “home” uniforms have also been unveiled by the team but, compared to previous uniforms, they kept the design template. The red “away” uniform features, across the right breast, the LAC monogram. Across the left breast you will find the player’s jersey number. The “home” white uniform features, across the front, a black logo.
The LA Clippers call the Staples Center home.
