    Now if they could just update that ugly ass uniform/logo, that would be great. I do like the way the new court looks.

    Much better.

    Hopefully some improved lighting is on the cards as well.

    Isn't this similar to what it was when TC first opened?

    too much red on the court isn't great for tv viewing purposes

    I agree. Hopefully they'll adjust the lighting this go-around.

    The original TC court did not translate well to TV.

    Maybe they will have the lights off (except the court) like at Lakers games.

    Spoilered for Size...

    (Lighting) Do it like you had for the all-star game.

    Looks better & you can "hide" the half empty arena. :p

    I'm actually not a fan of the red. The baselines are one thing, but there's no need to fill in the key area with red, IMO.

    Both are examples of the same - stage lighting. Lakers first introduced in 06-07 (Lights Out), NBA has been using at All Star games recently.

    Unless the Rockets switch to LED lighting at Toyota Center, I would expect stage lighting. The Texans switched to LED's last season and the stage effect at NRG is evident for night games. Day games not so much because of the translucent Teflon roof.
