At Barclays, The Floor's The Thing

Instagram

The Nets unveiled their version of the Black Keys Tuesday in the Post, a photo gallery of the (much-leaked) basketball court at Barclays Center, highlighted by the NBA's first black key areas and a herringbone floor pattern that Brett Yormark hopes will define the arena whether it's seen live or on TV.

"We wanted a court that was identifiable and different, so that when fans turn on the TV at home they’ll realize they are in Brooklyn," crowed Nets/Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark. "This court does exactly that." Yormark said the finished product gives "bold, dark, gritty feeling" to the court that "blends nicely with the entire motif" of the 18,200-seat arena. Hardwood Maple panels weighing 185 pounds each create the V-shaped patterns.
