New Court Design Announced
The Denver Nuggets will unveil an all new court design for the upcoming NBA season. The updated design features some substantial changes to the hardwood court that has remained virtually the same since the 2010-2011 season.
Upon first glance, fans will immediately notice the center court logo has been replaced with the Nuggets’ primary mountain peak logo. The Nuggets iconic pick axes that comprise their secondary logo have been moved to encompass the entire area inside the three-point lines with a two-tone treatment to the hardwood. The key or free throw lane now has all paint removed allowing the classic woodgrain to show through with the large pick axes crossing just in front of the basket. A two-tone mountain range will also be added along the sideline spanning across the timeline below the center court primary logo. Below the mountain range, the numbers 5280 and 300 are another fresh addition, symbolizing Denver’s altitude of 5,280 feet and the front range’s historical average of 300 days of sunshine per year. The “DENVER NUGGETS” text along each baseline has also been updated to match the new western inspired font of the new home and away uniform designs. The Nuggets website and Twitter handles are still present along the sideline near the coaches boxes and team benches, with the NBA’s logo at center court in front of the scorer’s table.
The new court will see its first action on October 16 when the Nuggets host the Phoenix Suns in a preseason game. The Nuggets first regular season home game is on October 30 vs the Minnesota Timberwolves at 7pm.
