Nets.com's Ben Couch has the details on the new court, which boasts a herringbone pattern that Nets CEO Brett Yormark trumpets as the team's attempt to develop a signature look rivaling the surfaces at some of the league's most recognizable arenas:

Designed by the Brooklyn Nets' creative team and produced at Connor Sports Flooring Manufacturing Mill in Amasa, Mich., the court will officially debut November 1, when the Nets open the season against the Knicks. It consists of 240 panels each measuring 4-feet wide, 7-feet long and 185 pounds; they took two weeks to construct, utilizing specialized milled lumber. The court takes four hours to a.ssemble. [...]

"The vision all along was to have something that was truly identifiable and unique and when people turned on their TVs at home, know they were in Brooklyn," Yormark said. "When you turn on the TV and you turn on a Celtics game and you look at that court, it's a parquet that has become very recognizable. We want this to be the same — it's our version of the parquet. I think it truly delivered against all of our expectations."

On one level, that's true; the mere fact of having a patterned home court should set the Nets apart, much as the fabled parquet of the Boston Garden (replicated in the TD Garden, the Boston Celtics' home since 1995) lent (and lends) a distinctive look and feel to every Boston home game. On another, the court's look only goes from "distinctive" to "cool and iconic" when you win a bunch of games and titles on that court over a long period of time. Otherwise, you just wind up with a different deck that's a.ssociated with little more than losing, and could even wind up screwing with those fancy motion-tracking cameras you installed to try to help give your team an advanced analytical boost.

As in most things, marching to our own beat tends to draw admiration only if you wind up at your destination faster; as with all things Nets, the time, attention, money and interest invested won't make a lick of difference if they don't win a bunch. Still, it's pretty.

I didn't think it was possible for an area to have an uglier floor than the old Boston Garden Parquet..


I was wrong.

That sh*t is so fu*king ugly


They need an accent color (even something as simple as gray/silver), black and white is such an ugly colorway without an accent for logos and uniforms
