Detroit logo mashup intriguing, but the 'D' needs more prominence

Sports Grid recently created a graphic hypothesizing what it would look like if each of a city's professional sports teams' logos were put together. They're all pretty creative and I've cropped out the Detroit logo at right. Detroit's is above average with the Red Wings' wings added to Lions' broad shoulders as the Leo is propped up on the Pistons' signature basketball.
But what's troubling about Detroit's emblem, and makes it evident it was designed by somebody outside of Michigan, is that relative dismissal of the Olde English D. It appears as some sort of shoulder tattoo on the lion. Maybe put the D on the basketball? What do you think?

They should put the D on the Red Wing wheel.
