It looked really weird still.

Fooled me the first time when I saw it live.

Its cool....I liked it, they should made a half naked lady pic instead of a team name though

I was at thegame today and at first glance it didnt look good. But when you saw it on the monitor it looked much better

I like the centre court logo and color scheme. The 3D element is unique, but unnecessary

I was expecting something way cooler, haha, maybe including the centre court logo.

I'm not really that impressed - if anything it's a little distracting. The goal of the court design should be to look good but not draw attention to itself, not to confuse the eyes.

Seriously you might be able to do some cool celebrations with that

When theres a thread about the nicest court in the nba, the raptors somehow will not win :(

When I seen it on NBA tv I said to myself now what if someone trips over that raptors sign then what... Now I feel incredibly stupid lol

Thats because you live in Germany. They've had this in soccer for a while now, but usually to advertise things.

first time i saw that on tv 2day i said..haha wow really.. players gonna be runnin in to that and trippin and ****.. then they stepped on it and i was like haha WOW..fooled me.

i like it.. i think they should have that for every team...and try to have somewhat the same effect with the midcourt logo aswell :)

i dont get what big deal is. The center court logo didnt look at that 3d to me.

I used to have problems discerning whether or not I was watching a Raptors game. It's hard to tell sometimes, as you know, because many other NBA teams have giant dinosaur feet painted at mid-court.

But my troubles are history thanks to this great new 3D logo! My eyes are magically pulled away from the game in progress. And that adds to the enjoyment as I'm always 100% sure now that I am, in fact, watching a Raptors game.

WWWSSSHHHH 3333DDDDDDDD!!!!!

i knew that part was 3d but still didnt think was big deal. I also thought center court logo was supposed to be 3d?

Is it cool? Definitely.

But I find it distracting, and I think the novelty will wear off really quickly

For some reason I thought the floor was fake and this was a video game. Haha. Looks cool. But it is distracting.

Quick question for the mods if someone post a joke on the 3D note would that be considered baiting when the emphasis is on the D?

DodgerBulls
12-19-2011, 07:40 AM
Call me old fashion, but what is the purpose of the 3d design aside from the "cool" reason? I mean, we can see the "RAPTORS" very clearly anyway. So, does it even help them with marketing? It's already gigantic so it's kinda pointless.

kind hurt my eyes a little. Cool idea though.

Yeah that thing threw me off bad. When I was watching the highlights I was yelling "Who in their right mind puts a sign right in the middle of where all the action is, somebody is going to get hurt". Nice to see it finally explained.

Hate to see the injury report SKYROCKET when everyone plays in Toronto LOL

It was the most awkward thing I have seen in my life. But I can understand why they did it. Atleast people will get hypnotized and stare at the 3-D features all game long and forget how bad the Raptors are playing or how hard it is for Bargs to grab a rebound

this. Andrea "the Magician" Bargnani is using misdirection to disguise his lack of rebounding.

I would think it would be an injury risk but I guess it looks a lot different on the actual court so it wont look the same way to the players.

Cool at first. Annoying after a while, as eyes focus in on the design more than the game.

wonder if they going to do this in other arenas.

12-19-2011, 02:36 PM
It is kinda distracting, if they can find a way to make the center logo 3D it would be cool. I bet most teams follow fold soon enough.

It's the first time a basketball team has done it in North America .. For those who don't watch much, or any, Futboll or anything else that it has been shown before, it is the first time they've seen anything like it .. Myself included .

I really dislike it. Whenever I watch a Raptors game in Toronto on TV then it distracts me.

I always think players are gonna kill themselves falling over it.

DeRozan just stumbled backwards over it and I thought he was gonna fall over it and hurt himself.

Baby Davis took a nose-dive into it today and I though he was gonna break his neck.

It's very distracting, and I'm glad that no other NBA teams have them.
It also looks dumb when people stand or sit on it.

Anyway. I really dislike it and always have, so I had to revive this thread to finally express my disdain for that silly distraction of a 3D court. :)

The Raptors organization apologizes that you do not understand the concept of an illusion.

I desire no optical illusions with my basketball. Adds nothing but distraction from the game. That 3D court is a stupid novelty which thankfully no other NBA teams were dumb enough to follow suit with.

But thank you for the apology from the Raptors organization. They owed me one for needlessly messing with my head and causing a constant distraction every time I watch a Raptors game.

That 3D illusion court is so 2011 too. A lame euro-born novelty that thankfully never made it to the US.

It's pretty much useless.

And annoying... they've had it for a while though. I love how the 3-D logo is more interesting than the game though... there is a fawking game going on and the commentators are hyping up the 3-D logo... I guess that's what you have to do when you have a team as bad as TO, just hype up how interesting the floor is, since the players aren't ;-)
