Way too BLUE for me.GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Better than that ugly green color last year. That was just distracting.

Our Scarlett/White uniforms are going to look very nice up against that blue trim on the court. 'Murica
Also awesome video. I too am a sucker for time-lapse construction videos.

I think we could look very nice on that court.

Also, I'd watch just about anything in a time-lapse video.

I think you mean the best thing to come out of Michigan after Hankins.

Does anyone else find it ironic that a surface that smooth can be constructed in Meatchicken, yet their highways are about as smooth as a lunar surface?

Bumpy roads are the least of Michigan's worries right now.  The whole state is broke(n).

Excuse me if I don't shed a tear.

I love me a time lapse...some real effort went into that one!

Now they'll have to figure out how to get the court out of that warehouse ;)

Wow... pretty sweet!
On a side note, anyone else assemble one of these before? What a pain...

I can't believe they make a new court every year.  Dumb me, I thought they kept them and changed the logos and colors.  Seems wasteful, jmho.

You were right.  They just sand off the shellac and paint and repaint the top.  At least that's what I was told when I worked at UD Arena for the NCAA games.

Occasionally a team will buy the court after winning it all and have it installed at home.

Really interesting story, albeit from last year on this company and the work they do on the floors. It seems they do reuse when they can but new paint jobs each year on the floors. And by really interesting I mean for someone who is a nerd about sports designs and stuff

Pretty cool to see how it comes together. I wonder how long that took in real time?
