NBA Court Changes for 2013-14

Via the usual sources, here's a visual compilation of new court designs for the 2013-14 NBA season. Frankly, most of the courts depicted don't look that different to me from what the respective teams have had in the past.

Sharp New Court for Creighton

From my usual sources, Creighton has a neat new floor, complete with a new Blue Jay logo and what looks like a wide-plank wood design.

San Jose State's New Floor: Two Huge Logos is One Too Many

Via Matt Rachmiel and Uni-Watch, San Jose State has a new floor, shown here. As can be seen, the design features both the school's blue and gold Spartan helmet logo and, quoting from the linked article, a "quintet of the fabled Greek heroes stand[ing] armed and ready below mid-court, with four of their shields spelling out 'SJSU' and flanking the fifth shield with the athletic program’s logo." As if this weren't enough visual stimulation, the areas inside the three-point arcs are darkened, as well. Below is a schematic I created, of how one could incorporate all the same elements without overwhelming the viewer.
