Years ago, one team proposed a black floor designed to recall darker asphalt courts. The league rejected it, arguing it would not play well on television.

 

Whoa. Who?

It was the Hawks I believe. There was some espn article about the rebranding years ago that said they were looking at doing it.

“Biggie-inspired tilted-crown alternate logo?”

Is this new? I don’t recall a logo like this at all

That was the Hawks. When we first had the rebranding, they proposed to have the court mirror the look of a blacktop. When it was rejected, they instead used the same proposed design to revitalize the city parks and rec center courts. There's pictures of what the design would look like if it was approved. Grant-park-Court-Complete.jpg?10566

I like the streetball vibes of it. I just wish it was an alternate court or something to match their statement jerseys. Because I really loved their original court. It was a top 5 in the league in my opinion. That dark wood with the black and white lines was just perfect.

It'll be interested to see how this influences courts moving forward. Ever since the Bucks came out with their "Fear the Deer" black heavy court more and more teams having been getting alternate courts. I wonder if we'll see more courts like the Nets?

Awww man I'd love a black/blacktop style court

 

i like it but i also feel like only certain teams should do it. when you think of streetball, you don’t really think of Memphis or Atlanta. i feel like the Knicks and Nets are probably the only teams that can make a legit case for a streetball court. I would love to see the Knicks do something with the Green and Red courts you see in Parks Department courts. Maybe even shaded on trees with empty branches. as an alternate court of course. spacer.png
