That 3-D thing fawks with my eyes... I don't like it... what the Raps really need is a new GM.

To create a thread like this, if you aren't going to post the links, just wait until you have time before doing it.
I added the Suns link to the main post but I've no idea where to find the Raptors court or what it looks like.

The Suns court is OK. The SUNS in the middle reads the same way from both sides. I'd prefer the flaming phoenix but they're trying to bring in the 'new' so I'm ok with it.

the suns court is ugly as hell, where is the purple? it looks like a court they made just for halloween, except, they're going to have it all year.

When I first saw that 3d illusion Toronto had on their court it threw me off and I remember saying to myself, who's the stupid person that left a Raptors sign right there. Then I noticed they were walking over it then my mind just blew up!!!!!

As for the Suns, it looks kinda cool. I never noticed this and I don't know if I'm the only one. I only realized it looking at the suns logo in the middle. But did you guys know that you can read the name forwards and backwards, I forget the technical name for it.

The Suns court just reminds me too much of Oklahoma States court so I can't take it seriously.

3D logos are popular in Europe. But they use them for advertisements on the soccer fields. Its something new, looks ok.

I hate that 3D deal on the Raps floor. The Suns floor looks cool.

We've had a few threads on the Suns one. I hate the Raptors 3D thing. It's just there for the sake of it, it doesn't even look good. Pretty tacky.

what are you so butthurt for? purple on the raptors court looks terrible. black and purple? are you aesthetic sense-challenged?

no your just as stubborn as any raptor fan. Just admit it everyone loved the old raptor jerseys and the black/purple/red look.

The Suns one looks good, the Raptors court still looks really dumb with those 3d things. I think we all know they're the Raptors, no need for them to paint an awkward looking sign saying "Raptors" on both ends of the floor...

Hello,
You are ignorant as any other NBA fan who knows little about the Raptors, now leave this thread because no one cares about your opinion. Now get off your computer and live your "thuglife" Mr.ThugLifeJ

Ill make a poll if you want, I guarentee majority like the Purple involved with the Raptors more than the stupid red. Raptors are so boring now.

and why do people always pout about Thuglife? Its just a username, ever heard of 2pac?

Guarantee? Sure scratch one up on rap's fourm odd's are against me but why not? Your guarantee right. Raps are not boring now look at their roster now it's like Lob City up in the North, at least I feel like it is

The Suns court is super nice.

I can't ****ing stand the Raptors' 3D court. **** is so stupid.

And the Raptors court isn't new..

I want the Raps to go back to the white and purple **** of the early 2000's........they were pretty cool. The red and black are bruital......home whites arent so bad but the old unis are way better. Dont mind the 3d thing tho, its different i guess.

I like the Suns court a lot. Orange goes well with the hardwood floors. The court should not be a play on colors. Simple is best.

I think someone said "cute." That's about how I feel. Nothing too terribly cool or amazing about these courts but for their "cute" gimmick features of "SUNS" appearing right-side up on either side of the court and the crazy 3D effect on the Raptors' endlines.

:laugh2: I had the exact same reaction to the 3D Raptors thing. Exact same.

As for the Suns dealy, I don't think it has a term. Palindrome is if a word (phrase, paragraph, ect) is spelled the same backwards and forwards but the court reads rightside up and upside down (taking advantage of Suns being a palindrome, but also the similar shape of "u" and "n").

Lol, you said "tacky". It takes me back to the 80's.

You're a year late on the raptors court lol, and who really gives a **** about the 3D thing? Not a big deal.

Suns court looks alright, I liked the one they had before though.

It's called an ambigram. Anyways, I like the old Suns court much better, it was one of the best IMO, this new one looks like a halloween college court.
