    Old school is the way it should be not new school.

    best logo in pro sports period. Bulls and Yankees a close second/third for me in terms of how iconic they are.

    Just how sweet would it be to win a championship on this court this season?

    I'm with Bones on this - I don't see any reason to like it.

    But on the positive side, it's nowhere near as abominable as the Ducks floor.

    To me the white key is synonymous with winning and the greatest era in Blazers history. Also, in a day an age where every team seems to be biting off of each other's style, it's great to see us be original and, to my knowledge, we are the only team in the league with a white key.

    The lower case font is Trail Blazers basketball. Is it 70's in look and feel? Absolutely, but that's when we made our debut in the NBA. To me, that aesthetic is timeless.

    I do undersand not seeing anything from your era represented and I obviously favor the early 90's as that is when I became a fan of the team. Might I suggest going back and watching some classic games from those teams in 77 and 90-92? A few years ago I didn't have much connection to the 77 team as I wasn't even born yet so I never watched that squad live. But I found a lot of the playoff games online from that title run and fell in love with that squad despite not growing up with them in the moment.

    Bro, that old school Blazers font is the best thing ever. I used it on one of my tattoos. God I love this court. Wish they would keep it like this for future year. They did an amazing job on it.

    I'll one up ya....I like CDs burned from LPs....a lot of my Hendrix and Beatles recordings are burned backups of my LPs...I don't like the CDs mixes from that era...they tend to crank the bass and drums and bury the vocals

    I mean, I guess thats the problem is I'm young so I have no nostalgic feeling towards it. This court is going to be loved by those who are 35 and older.

    Watching classic games isnt a bad idea, because I want to like the court. I just think itd keep more novelty if they only used it every 5 to 10 games with a combination of different throwback uniforms. Thatd make it feel more special and it wouldnt where off. I guess part of it is I dont like it being used for every single game.

    Wait...someone thought MP3's were better? Sure, if you like compressed and crappier quality song files...
