The NBA has unveiled an LED court that will be used during All-Star Weekend at events hosted by Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Although the NBA All-Star Game will be held at Gainbridge Fieldhouse (the home of the Pacers and Fevers) and will not have the LED field, the rest of the weekend festivities will be held at the NFL stadium where the Colts play.
This means that the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, the Skills Challenge, the 3-Point Contest and the Slam Dunk Contest will all take place on a fantastic LED court. (The one-on-one shooting contest, Stephen vs. Sabrina, will also take place on this special court.)
The field that will use the NBA, developed by German company ASB GlassFloor, will add an enhanced experience for fans in the arena and those watching the TNT broadcast.
It will allow for design and color changes, live replays, game statistics, player tracking animations, and other animations.
This is truly a great little step toward the future of the NBA. We look forward to admiring this stunning LED court from the TV at the All-Star Weekend in Indianapolis.
