NBA Changes 2019-20

Recommended Posts

So am I guessing that the "home courts" idea is dead, or just not being used for the practice games.

They’re just practice courts. From what I’ve seen they’ve brought in the two Magic courts (makes sense), the Heat Vice (sure) and... the Pacers? You’d think they could find some other courts they could lay down in hotel ballrooms without having to bring them from Indianapolis but apparently not.

I bet we will see home courts starting in the playoffs either first round or somewhere around the Conference Finals or Finals.

The Magic local broadcaster (Fox Sports Florida) hasn’t put ads or team logos onto the court. I had no idea that was happening. Looks awful.

Not really practical to be changing the courts around.  Maybe for the Finals, but 1st/2nd round, there's no way that's happening.  Actually, with all the big screens, it probably makes it more difficult to change out the courts than usual, so the generic courts are probably there for the entire time.

Didn’t get to verify until the second gme of the night, but in the seeding games, players wearing social justice messages have the message arched above the back number, while those remaining with their own surname have their name placed below the number.

 

Makes me wonder what Memphis will look like on their white or dark blue options, where name appeared below number pre-bubble.

Edited by VandyDelphia Mike
Memphis now restarted, but debuted in light blue, which was name over number pre-woke messaging.

I don’t think the NBA is going to suddenly give up that extra revenue it generates by adding the digital ads all over the floor once the playoffs start. I won’t be surprised to see those blank courts are here the rest of the way.

It looks stupid with NOB messages above the number and actual NOB below. Keep it uniform, also noticed the base line team specifics weren't added for either game tonight

I don’t think the home courts thing was ever confirmed; makes sense that they were just brought in when there’s a sudden extra need for them on the Disney World campus.

 

probably some obscure league requirements for the wood or whatever that very very few courts in the world fulfill.

 

Honestly I’m fine with it, though I hate the digital ad thing obviously, but I think seeing the Celtics parquet or the Lakers design in this weird empty box surrounded by gargantuan LED screens would be too uncanny.

I was told that the nba and disney were going to use their unlimited resources to ship all the courts to espnland so each team would play on their home court. What happened?

they should have swapped it and done the player messages in the style of underneath the number. the last names are more easily read than the messages. im having to stretch my neck to read a vertically arched 'Black Lives Matter' . i dont know why this is so hard

With the games looking like they are being played in a TV studio, this really looks like a screengrab from NBA2k (or whatever game the kids are playing these days...)

Check out this clip if you think this doesn't look like 2K.

For the first few days it’s social justice message above number, names under.

 

After that, everyone’s name will be under the number. If a player chooses to keep a social justice message above for the remainder of the games, they can.
