New Knicks Court for 2015-16

Recommended Posts

It appears the Knicks are making changes to their court for the 2015-16 season, specifically, the paint. It looks like the Knicks' color scheme is more "blue and orange" rather than their traditional "orange and blue".

Note: My source is NBA 2k16's trailer, as shown in the images below.

The orange didn't quite pop due to the wood grain, so it really is just a lateral move. I really don't mind the flood of blue.

Note the college lanes are still in.

The blue keys are somewhat of a throwback to the 80s.

Sad to see the orange paint go but I love extreme 1980s MSG look down to the orange markings. It actually makes the current unis make more sense. Also seeing the NBA 2k16 trailer the raptors could have the black basketclaw logo at center, as spectulated the hawks could have black base lines.

Are the sixers getting a new court? Also, auto correct turned sixers in to suckers.

From the looks of it it looked the same..

I definitely like the new court much better but I think you're right about the orange...it just never looked great with how light the floor was. Looks much better in PHX against a darker floor. Using black court markings makes it pop a lot more too.

No auto correct was right and the only thing changing on the "7suckers" is the center logo which is a good move.

On phone, the first video game screenshot of the lane looks like it has a flake undercoat - similar to a number college football helmets. Obviously not the case, but would be interesting to see the actual application.

UPDATE: Post-release color changes. The court actually may have a darker hue than the original image shows.

The darker option looks closer to the mid-90's era court. I too prefer this option over the lighter shade.

Official court confirmed through photos and Kristaps Porzingis. It happens to be the darker version:

It would make sense that Knicks keep college lines since the Knicks court often host college games with only a few pieces of the floor modified.
