This is a nice video and provides a good overview of the project.
I wonder why they decided to put it so low?I suppose it's OK as long as there are no fans allowed.
As long as we keep it under 26-27K or so, it doesn't look like it'll be in the way.I wonder why they decided to put it so low?
That surely blocks the view of the court of fans sitting on the eastern end of the stadium. Yes, it doesn’t really matter now but wouldn’t it be smart to establish a standard height for basketball games and then stick to it religiously?
One of the fun things to watch since the renovation is the reaction of opposing players to the facility. The telecasts don’t do a good job of highlighting this but when they show close shots of the opposing sideline, you see players looking up at the scoreboard a lot. You can see them talking about the scoreboard to nearby players and can see them ooh and aah. But my favorite thing to do is try and catch players who make a good play immediately afterwards. A lot of them gawk at the scoreboard to watch themselves on the replay.
With the scoreboard so low and close to the court, I bet we see a lot of this kind of thing when teams come to the dome for basketball. This is something worth looking out for.
