Earlier this summer, the previous Cavs' court was ranked dead last in Zach Lowe's Definitive NBA Court Design Power Rankings on Grantland.

"The Cavs have never been able to get their court right," wrote Lowe. "Their color scheme can be hard to digest in big slices, and though they keep changing the center-court logo, they seem determined to make it as large as possible.
