They didn't really do shit.

I like how the press release talks about the font change like it was a bold design and they didn't just un-italicize the letters.

Logo and jerseys have never been as good as they were in the mid 80s anyway.

I like it: new one looks cleaner and will look better when printed onto most anything (and the design won't flake off shirts as easily)

But I figured they'd do something more on the nose like a backpacker with a joint

Very subtle update. Definitely cleaner than the old one. Using the same thickness and interconnecting the lines makes it a bit easier on the eyes. Not sure why they flipped the color though but yeah good update.

Also, the pinwheel is supposed to represent the yin yang flow of a team perfectly executing a fast break or some shit like that.

It's also really nothing more than a stylized B. But you can't just SAY that...
Looks more like a stylized H to me

Not as bad as this:
Noooo, what the fuck. That shit belongs on a floppy disk from the 90s

If you had asked me to describe the Trailblazer logo from memory I would have described the new logo.

I may have crossed into Bernstein universe. BBIAB.

It's fine I guess? Nothing wrong with getting abstract for team logos and the pinwheel design is timeless so I guess a little fiddling with the order of color and the angles of the outline isn't the worst change they could think of.
