    I feel vindicated by this decision. I knew that wasn't right, and it isn't *just* on TV. Looks greenish in person too.

    And while they are at it, can they do something about the "Court" in Bobby Cremins Court? The older styles they used were much nicer.

    Also on a side note
    What about ghosting in the skyline of Atlanta at the bottom of the court
    One of the most recognizable skylines in the world has been created by Ga Tech architects, lets let everyone know it

    Personally, I don't like when teams do that or other "busy" stuff on the court. I like the classic, clean look.

    Understand I like a cleaner look also but if you are wanting to be Atlanta team I think its a good way to give them a nod as

    The stuff our fan base cares about and the stuff you can’t get them to care about. Never ceases to amaze.

    In all seriousness, our floor looked horrible. If they want to use gold everywhere, then they have to use a different stain on the surrounding wood. The gold with the almost natural stain makes everything look washed out.

    I’d love a parquet floor like the Celtics with the right color of gold.

    Heaven knows we in no way could do something so radical as use our other color White in some unique way as the main color.

    Or instead of a painted logo, use an inlay with a much darker wood for contrast.

    The idea of having the skyline on the court is innovative as well.

    Redo needed. Court color looks pretty awful. Why is it so hard for the GTAA to do anything right?

    I say dump gold and go navy.

    Not just on the court but like for everything. Gold looks dumb on everything.

    Yeah the uniform/court mismatch is slightly comical.

    Also why is the center GT outlined in navy but nothing else is? Also looks bad.

    While we’re at it, can we lose the cheddar outline of the GT on the ceiling?

    You don’t see it often but when they show the ceiling. GT outline looks cheddar. The very bottom of the center scoreboard

    This. That navy blue outline a center court has a lot todowith the problem. It just does not look right.

    Gotcha, I was confused by you calling the bottom of the scoreboard the 'ceiling' – but I agree the GT on the bottom of the scoreboard is the wrong shade of gold.
