  1. Great job with the New Orleans Athletics uniforms. However, on the numbers and letters on the home and road jerseys, I would have added purple trim to the script Athletics and New Orleans and have the numbers and letters be green with purple and gold trim. As for the pelican, it is a nice touch but I wouldn't know if the NBA's Pelicans would allow the A's to use the pelican for their logo. They could either bite the bullet with the elephant or use the nutria (the animal with orange teeth that the minor league Zephyrs used for their mascots and logo) for their logo. If the Oakland Athletics decide to move if they can't find a place in Oakland for a new ballpark, maybe they should look at the Crescent City among others for a new home. The ballpark, The Shrine on Airline in suburban Metairie (Formerly Zephyr Field) could either be expanded or torn down and a new retractable roof ballpark be built in its place.
  2. Memphis, TN is east of the Mississippi River (actually for all intents and purposes, it is on the Mississippi). In my opinion, when MLB does expand, and if two cities west of the Mississippi get PCL franchises, then the Memphis Redbirds and the Nashville Sounds should move to the IL.
  3. Those are nice Dallas Athletics. I would think, however, that if Mr. Finley had moved the team to the Dallas-Ft. Worth suburb of Arlington, I believe he would have named the team the Texas Athletics, in order to encompass the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. The caps would have had an Old English "T" instead of the "DA" that you have on your caps. Could you do one with the Texas Athletics?
  4. On the gray road uniforms for the Braves, I would've made the first letter A in Atlanta larger like the team used for their road uniforms from 1976 to 1980.
  5. I wish the Celtics would put either another Red Auerbach signature or something like "17 time NBA Champions" in the lower right area of the court. However, I think that when the Celtics made a new floor using parts of the historic floor that was in Boston Arena (now Matthews Arena) and later the Boston Garden, Coach Auerbach's signature is on two of the original parquet panels.
  6. I know the 5280 stands for the altitude of Denver (The Mile High City) but what does the 300 stand for?
  7. OK. Thanks. Sorry for any inconvenience. Also, to the posters on this website, please pray for my family. My father, who served in the US Army during the Korean War, passed away on Christmas Eve after a lengthy battle with Parkinson's Disease, dementia, and Alzheimer's Disease. He was 84 years of age.
  8. I have three questions: 1.I noticed the Charlotte Hornets Court has one corner cut off of it. Is that an error or is that the way the Hornets court is at the Time Warner cable Arena. 2. I know you have the basketball courts at the New Orleans Jazz when they played at the Louisiana Superdome. Do you have the pictures of the basketball courts they just used when they play their games Municipal Auditorium and the Loyola Field House, where the jazz play before the Superdome was completed? 3. Do you have any of the courts from the other American Basketball Association teams besides the Nuggets, the Pacers, the Nets, and the Spurs?
  9. I wanted to tell you about the Atlanta Hawks basketball court when they played at the Alexander Memorial Coliseum on the Georgia Tech campus. On YouTube, if you enter Classic Center Battle Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 32 pts vs Earl Bellamy 21 points, you will see a matchup from 10-17-1970 between the Milwaukee Bucks (when Kareem was still known as Lew Alcindor) and the Atlanta Hawks (This was Pistol Pete Maravich's first NBA game and Oscar Robertson's first game as Milwaukee buck after being acquired from the Cincinnati Royals). If you look at the picture, the jump circle has two white lines through the center of the yellow outer circle where you had the GT logo, and In the inner circle was the blue Hawk head profile on the green circle background.
  10. All 3 of you didn't like the ODU blue stain. Besides completely removing the blue stain, what other suggestions (logo placement, other stains, etc.) do you have for their court? I actually liked the blue stain, so I'm a bit surprised by the comments. About the UTSA roadrunners on the court, I wanted to included full roadrunner logo on the court but I didn't want to put it in the paint like I did/going to do with some other teams. So I kind of just put them somewhere just to have them on there. I wasn't completely happy with them on there either. PSUcelticsWON95, the Marshall letters were taken from this wordmark. Can you be more clear about what you meant about UTEP? I took the pickax idea from their current court, but wanted to add more blue to the court. And I agree with you on the Hawaii state silhouette/sweat stain thing, but I never really thought they looked like sweat stains to start with. Two thumbs up on Southern Miss' court. Louisiana Tech's looks great also, but the women's teams, who also play at the Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, are called the "Lady Techsters" because when the women's team was started in 1974, coach Sonja Hogg decided not to call the team The Lady Bulldogs because she thought bulldogs were unfeminine and that female dogs were, well, the word she used rhymes with "Witches".
  11. I think the 1981-83 and the 1983-87 courts had a center line completely going through the center circle where the former Nugget Man logo was. (The Nugget Man logo, BTW is ESPN's Chris Berman's all-time favorite logo. The Nuggets should bring it back). It looks like it ain't: (See 00:28) To quote Larry the Cable Guy, "That ain't right. Lord, I Apologize". Sorry for the error. The clip is proof. I think that from 83-87 it had the center line all the way through.
  12. I think the 1981-83 and the 1983-87 courts had a center line completely going through the center circle where the former Nugget Man logo was. (The Nugget Man logo, BTW is ESPN's Chris Berman's all-time favorite logo. The Nuggets should bring it back).
  13. When the Hawks played at Alexander Coliseum (now remodeled and renamed the McCamish Pavilion), their team logo covered up the "McDonald's Center" logo that was used when Georgia Tech played their games there, and the dotted lines on the free throw lanes were decals that covered up the ACC logos.
  14. You forgot to put the 10-second lines on this court. I think during this time they were either white or red, maybe yellow.
  15. I think from 1979-1988, there was no center line in the blue section of the center court jump circle. Thanks! corrected! I meant to say 1978-88 because I saw the SEC storied episode about Sam Bowie, who played in the US/DC High School Classic in Landover. Sam was on the US All Star Game while Ralph Sampson was on the DC area team.BTW, it now says the images of the Capital Centre floor is currently unavailable. Can they be put up again?
  16. I think from 1979-1988, there was no center line in the blue section of the center court jump circle.
  17. On the 1973-83 court, I think the out of bounds area was more of a royal blue than a navy blue, and the out-of-bounds line was yellow.
  18. Was the word "Superdome" just on one sideline on this court? I think it was on both sidelines, IIRC. I saw a game on TV when DePaul played Mississippi State in the Sugar Bowl Classic at the Superdome and I think the word "Superdome" was on both sidelines.
  19. This is upside down. Can it be posted right-side up?
  20. Posted all the Cavaliers' courts.
  21. I think that the circle where the crown is in the Kingdome logo was the same size as the standard 4-foot restraining circle which was inside the 12-foot circle as most courts.
  22. To me, I think that the circle where the crown is on the Kingdome logo at center court was a little bigger than the one you have on your post. I think it was the same size as the 4-foot restraining circle that is used in most center courts.
  23. For some great pictures of the basketball court designs used by the Cleveland Cavaliers from their start in 1970 to today, you can go to http://www.cavshistory.com/courts . 1970-73 Cleveland Arena (although it may have been used for the Cavs' final season [1973-74]) 1973-83 Richfield Coliseum (I don't know if this court was first used at the Cleveland Arena during the Cavs' final season there [1973-74] and then "The Coliseum" logo added when the team moved there or this court was first used in 1974. I also remember the Cavs' had retired numbers on the sidelines and not sure what color the 3-point line was when it debuted in the NBA in 1979. 1983-94 (although I think the Cavs' logo in the upper left hand corner was upside down)-1994 was final year at Richfield Coliseum 1994 (First season at Gund Arena)-1996 1996-2003 (I think they have the "Cleveland Cavaliers" word mark on the end lines upside down. 2003-05 2005-06 (Gund Arena name changed to Quicken Loans Arena) 2006-10 2010-12 2012-Present I would like to see the Cavaliers' bring back the 1970-83 logo. If it were supersized like many of the league logos are for basketball courts, it would look great.
