New court design for 19-20 season leaked?  

Post#1 » by Paradise » Sun Sep 22, 2019 6:52 pm

Multiple fans are claiming the Nets might have a new court design after 2K20 has changed the court colors.

The herringbone design stays but the color has been updated to grey. The center court logo is changed and the sidelines are brand new as well.

I don’t know...I suspect Joe Tsai will add his own imprint on the Nets brand now like Ballmer but I hope this isn’t it. This looks weird to me...

Why are we settling for anything less?

I have no problem with the paint being grey, but I rather them just leave the sidelines what it was before like the one Louis-D shared ^^.

as long as the ball goes in the hoop for the nets the court could be purple for all I care.

I think it's just an alternate but I like it. Really different from every other court out there.

Zach Lowe confirmed that these are the official courts.

Also confirmed that we're bringing back the Coogi City Jerseys except they'll be white instead of black.

Sean Marks basically designed it himself lol

The herringbone design in the wood, intended in part to mimic the floorboard patterns in some Brooklyn brownstones, was an immediate hit and tied together an overall look that set the Nets apart.

"There was some impetus to refresh things but also some hesitation," says Jeff Gamble, the team's vice president of content and creative. "We were nervous about messing it up. We have seen court designs that have fallen on their face."

But Marks wanted change, to put his artistic imprint on the franchise he has helped reinvent, and he had a radical idea: a gray floor meant to evoke blacktop courts, the streets of Brooklyn, and the borough's "industrial vibe," he says. Gray has been on the fringes of the team's Brooklyn-era palette, including on the alternate Brooklyn Dodgers-themed uniforms they wore in past seasons.

The Nets anticipated some pushback. "We were prepared to present a more traditional option as Plan B in case the NBA was not as receptive," says Steve Vollmer, the Nets' creative director. "But we were all-in on gray."

There was no pushback. The league liked the idea right away, Marks says. Brett Yormark, then the team's CEO, supported the new concept. (Yormark stepped down last month as Mikhail Prokhorov, the team's owner, prepared to finalize the sale of the team to Joseph Tsai.)

The only trick was getting the shade right -- dark enough to come across as gray on television, but not so dark as to muck up the visual experience.

Why.....????

I thought the idea of hardwood court is that the wood looks like wood. That gray color looks so artificial. The herringbone pattern is barely noticeable.

I hope it looks better in person.

Looks much better irl than NBA 2k. That being said, I still prefer our original look, I thought we had maybe the best looking court in the league.

Hopefully we get some blue alt unis. Those would look cool over the grey contrast of the court.

I like it because it makes the overall atmosphere of Barclays dark and grimy




this is the vibe.

It's a bit washed out. Old court design had a lot of warmth to it. Barclays is pretty dark with all the black. It was a nice contrast to have this vibrant, rich, almost red wood pattern. Now it looks bleak, like a shadow realm.

absolutly hate it. id be fine if it was an alternate, but this is straight trash.

the theatre ligthing with the deep wood and blacks was perfection, marks needs to sticking to team building and leave the design to someone else

on a plus note, coogi is back in white!
