This is just a quick poll to see what you guys think of what the Thunder did to their home floor over the off-season. The main visible change is in the lane. As you can see, our paint used to be wood coloured, with yellow trim and a blue free throw zone.
Now, our paint is all blue, and the free throw zone is all wood coloured. There is also a NBA Cares logo, not pictured below.
Personally, I'm not too big of a fan of the new paint, but I do understand its' changing for sponsorship reasons. Chesapeake Energy has blue in their logo, so they lit up their new arena like a blue flame and it only makes sense to paint the floor blue as well.
Still, I think there's more creative ways of going about it. Take the insane floor of the Charlotte Coliseum (home of the Hornets from 88-02), for example.
Okay, you don't have to get THAT crazy, but still, I think it's an improvement over unoriginality.
