Just beautiful. It's getting there. And huge thanks for trying that. Nothing I love more than an artist who has no ego, as IMO -- they make the very best Artists.

But out of Curiosity -- can we try a couple things -- just for Sh!ts & Giggles??? Smile

I have no problem trying to do whatever the LTB community asks, two minds think better than one, and I think the best banner can only be achieved with everyone's grain of sand.

So.. Any suggestions and/or ideas are welcome. Wink

Ok, just some thoughts, here (I was an Art Director for a Branding & Advertising Company in one of my former lives -- so the suggestions come from a good place, I hope, Lol).

And Remember -- you can probably go a bit larger, I believe -- if need-be.

  1. Add George Mikan to the left of Elgin -- Since he was the one who started it all.

  2. Make the Trophies a tad larger than the text -- with a hair-more spacing in-between them.

  3. As you have the "L" for "Lakers" at the bottom, and to the Left, hugging the Text-Box -- try the same with the Final "Z" in "Buzz", for visual Balance -- and just to see what it looks like. Raise Kobe up -- in order to compensate & maintain that cool torso-shot of him.

  4. At the top -- and in the deep background, maybe consider soft, subtle images of where our beloved Lakers have played -- gradually moving from one to the other, left to right -- the Minneapolis Auditorium, the Los Angeles Sports Arena, the Forum, and Staples.

And if I come up with any more inspiration -- I'll let you know.

Great touch with Doc Buss in there. Just awesome. As a matter of fact -- I even thought about something with the owners -- Bob Short, Jack Kent Cook, and Doc Buss, all three -- but it might be too much.

So Have fun!!! Smile

Beautiful banner design, a winner to me as well. I like how you put Jerry in it. Chick would be nice to include too, what you think?

I agree this to me is a winner already. A few adjustments could probably be made (haven't thought about it hard enough yet, but I will later on). But overall I really like the retro kind of font/look of it. It's retro but for some reasons seems modern. Really nice job.

TheTwinTowers and ArtJmnz are in a heated battle for design-supremacy right now. Both are great designs. Nice job to both of you.

I like that 3rd one the most. And the Dr. Buss tribute is a really nice touch.

Thanks brother, I appreciate your feedback. Maybe we should add Kaman to the banner. I'm totally kidding of course.

This is just me but you should leave out gasol and nash. Keep players on the banner that were lakers or are guaranteed to finish their careers off as one. So I guess just leave kobe at the end lol Idk just my 2 cents since nothing is for certain with this roster except kobe.

No. there should be an exception for present players. It's an Identifier.

Ya know -- just had an idea: Why not make the banner wider?

Most headers are the entire width of the screen -- and LTB's is an exception to that rule.

The best part is, it would give a larger area in which to tell the "Laker Story".

Then, as it evolves, you can add the 4 past arenas, 3 or for of the coaches (At the very least, Phil & Pat should be in there, now -- shouldn't they?) -- and maybe the DC-10, as it was more important to Laker-Lore than people realize.

Just some thoughts, here.

^^ That would be nice... I could try to do something wider but now my pc is broken.. :/

I guess it'll be for the next one,before the start of the season... Wink

I am also working on something bigger, once I have it almost if not ready I'll present it to Dave and all of you for your opinions Wink

why does the banner made by bornandraisedLA have Steve Nash on it?

To clarify the legends on this banner are great and the championships fantastic but is this banner saying with Steve Nash on it that this is the next chapter in Lakers history.

I like the first one but don't have Nash on it. He hasn't proven anything to the organization to be mentioned with those Lakers greats.
