    New Basketball Court Trend

    Nike, Ducks Inspire New Basketball Court Designs | Donahue Media Group

    I know all of these Oregon inspired floor designs are just jokes, but it will be interesting to see if anyone else tries to add a nontraditional floor to their arena. I wouldn't be a fan of it, but does anyone have any ideas for us?

    My vote is for the KFC Yum Center. Imagine us playing there: "Scott Christopherson with a 3-pointer from Colonel Sanders eyeball!"

    It does.

    Is that supposed to be prairie grass or something? Is it on fire? Why not corn on fire?

    Re: New Basketball Court Trend

    i don't really like this trend. i hope people don't start up with new court designs. its kind of like the multicolored football fields. grass is green and the field should be. wood is brown and the court should be. maybe its me just being traditional

    This. Most of the other ones just look like the joke they are meant to be, but the CU one is really nice. I also somewhat like the LSU one, mainly because the purple lines really stand out from the other colors on that floor.

    Re: New Basketball Court Trend

    In the end, the court needs to facilitate the game its intended to serve. Some of these look like they could be an impediment to the game and cool or not, that shouldnt be. I think the original falls into that group actually.

    Maybe Auburn's could feature some dead trees. (Too soon?)

    I think the floor for "the U" is too gaudy even for the Flint Tropics.

    Re: New Basketball Court Trend

    The Colorado court is really really cool. Ours would be corn stalks... so I'm content keeping it as is.

    Re: New Basketball Court Trend

    As far as I'm concerned, Oregon can keep their new court design and I hope it sticks to them. Too much stimulation of the eyes. Draws attention from the focus being on the players on the court, which is where it should be.

    Why not storm clouds? We are the CYCLONES after all. Plus, I think it could be easy to make the storm clouds blend into the floor and not be as gaudy or distracting as some of the other designs.
