Jeff Gamble/Brooklyn NetsThe Brooklyn Nets unveiled their brand-new court Monday afternoon.
According to the team's official website, the court's herringbone design consists of 240 hardwood panels that take four hours to assemble.
"The vision all along was to have something that was truly identifiable and unique and when people turned on their TVs at home, know they were in Brooklyn," Nets CEO Brett Yormark is quoted as saying on the Nets' website.
"When you turn on the TV and you turn on a Celtics game and you look at that court, it's a parquet that has become very recognizable. We want this to be the same -- it's our version of the parquet. I think it truly delivered against all of our expectations."
