Kodrinsky I think you forget the phoenix suns 2005-2006 season court?

 

Nope, I did not: they change the name of the arena in January, 2006.

I see, because i also looked here: http://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/PHO/2006.html

 

and it is says that they still play 2005-2006 season with name of America West Arena and starting next season 2006-2007 they played with new court name. 

 

They are wrong. Your sources are always full of errors. Basketball Reference is a gold mine, but they fail with name buildings, even arenas, a lot. For example: the Kansas City Kings played 2/3 of the 1979-80 season at the Kansas City Municipal Auditorium because Kemper Arena's roof collapsed in June 1979. If you check 1979-80 Kansas City Kings page in Basketball Reference, it says "Kemper Arena" and nothing about the Municipal Auditorium because both are located in the same city: Kansas City, MO. This happens because they take notes from scans of old box scores, and they only show the city as a location but not the venue.

 

Regarding the America West Arena/US Airways Center, if you check this picture from December 23, 2005:

And this one (January 6, 2016):

You will get the thing right.

Kodrinsky Well, my sources not always are wrong, but i agree with you on this, you are right, that the basketball-reference.com not always is 100% true about things like this, but it's still it is pretty good source. Anyway sorry man, i just want to help if i see something missing. Anyway keep working, you are doing great job!
