NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

Recommended Posts

The Bulls court looks good with the exception of the stars. The stars are a stupid idea to begin with, but then they expanded them and cut off the ends to the point where they don't even really look like stars. Dumb idea, bad execution, all-around failure.

The lane lines should be white instead of black, but other than that, I like it a lot. The proper Bulls script on the baselines looks so perfect that I can't believe it wasn't like that all along.

The Chicago stars are done poorly, but are largely inconsequential on the front sideline. To me, the problem with the Bulls embracing the stars is that there are only four of them on the flag, but the Bulls have six championships, so there's a slight hint of dissonance, as if any abstract symbol associated with success ought to be repeated six times. But again, not a huge deal.

Old one was better. I prefer the team name spelled out along the baseline when possible, and the typeface the 76ers use looks better in mixed case than all-caps.

At least they kept the vestigial college lanes. They may serve no purpose, but they add needed accent color to the floor.

Am I missing anything? It's practically the same thing!! Bigger logo at center court? Different font for baseline?? It's the same thing!

Slight tweaks..... but eh, it's very similar.

Yeah the gigantic "PHILADELPHIA" looks terrible.

It makes the baseline look very crowded.

The old court is definitely better. I hate the giant Philadelphia.

Although I am happy they kept the college lanes and do like the addition of the circle stars.

Raptors new court and new scoreboard:

Irrational complaint: Convex and concave screens on scoreboards seem very gimmicky. If either actually improved the crowd's viewing experience, I doubt teams installing new boards would go in the exact opposite direction.

I was playing NBA 2K16 and noticed that on the Raptors "Drake Alternate" they were using an alternate ASG patch. That's right, an alternate patch and an alternate court for this season in the NBA. What is next to get the alternate treatment?

Alternate team?

yeah they also don't refer to it as the "wells fargo center", just "our home arena". They said if Wells Fargo wants any recognition then they should become an official sponsor of the team, not just the arena.

Didn't know that about the floor though - WF can't be happy about that.

Was it covered about the 76ers new court? Apparently Wells Fargo Center is on the court is basically an illegible font?

Wait that's real? I was playing NBA 2K16 and I thought it was a programming error. That's hilarious.

Ha, me too. I just noticed it yesterday while playing against the Sixers. I thought this tiny little arena name down there looked awful.
