Have you seen what the big wigs selected as the finalists in the Create-the-Court contest? You can look at it here
Based on what I see here, what was the point of this contest? These selections are dull, boring, Blazer management's way of wanting to do cheap labor. For this reason, I have decided NOT to vote on these selections. I saw a lot of fellow BE's designs and they were great. Now I will admit, I'm in favor of a two-tone court, but I also want to see some color in the keys AND the free throw circle (something like the court in the early 90s at the original MC), as well as on the base line (one of those choices come close)
Bottom line for me; Blazer execs dropped the ball on this. They wanted the simplest, cheapest designs they could find. They didn't want style, pizazz, uniqueness. I guess this is the direction the franchise is going. What's next? They change the team name? That wouldn't surprise me. After all, it seems to me that the Blazer office no longer has the Trailblazer mentality.
