Why did the Utah Jazz..


Old School Fool

Recommended Posts

After seeing this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CyyqfHL_QhQ

I am seriously wondering because it doesn't make much sense other than the fact that they probably didnt have a court ready. (seriously how can you not have a court ready at the time of a change?!)

Also checkout the neat Sixers/Knicks throwbacks in the 2nd clip!

They had a new court with the new logo and they started the season with it, then there was something with the ice for the Utah Grizzlies melting and condensation, and it damaged the Jazz new floor. I think it even caused a game to be postponed, the floor was fixed and the new logo was there by the playoffs.

Thanks for the answer. :)

What was the arena crew seriously thinking putting a HOCKEY RINK above the damn court anyways?

I thought they laid out a flat surface with paint on it, then put ice over the top of it, cooled it at a regular temperature, etc.

Why in the blue hell did they not remove the Utah court then? Are folks in Utah really that stupid? (No offense to any Utah people on this board)

The arena base is a pad of concrete with refrigeration lines running through it, they spray a layer of water allow that to freeze then paint the lines and logos onto that and then several more layers of ice to finish the rink.

Any basketball floor sits on top of the rink with a layer of plywood separating the two. Like previously mentioned, somehow condensation effected the floor and ruined it and they had to revert back to the old court for a season.

Was that a dual Bucks/Marquette floor at the Bradley Center? Kind of neat.

1997 is an interesting transitional year in terms of talent and aesthetics, come to think of it. Early looks at Iverson and Garnett, plus the waning days of the non-garish 76ers and the classic Lakers uniforms.

Oh, I see that old Utah court now. Not a fan.

The Bucks and Marquette used the dual court at Bradley from the time it opened (1988) until about 1998 or so.

Not only do (most) of those uniforms look great, but the courts themselves look so much different than today's. Only Minnesota's looks the same. Honestly, that was a great time! Too bad there were no shots of the Charlotte Coliseum. Vancouver's, Atlanta's, New Jersey's, etc. look really sharp.
