Want to help the Portland Trail Blazers design their new court?


If your dream is to help design an NBA basketball court and to receive courtside tickets as compensation for your creative efforts, the Portland Trail Blazers have the perfect deal for you.

The team issued a press release Monday announcing fans will have until March 16 to swing by trailblazers.com/CreateTheCourt and submit a design for the new Moda Center — sorry, but I refuse to call it that — Rose Garden court that will be unveiled next season. There are 184,320 possible combinations given the preset options, so your creativity need not know bounds (well, besides the limit of 184,320).

Trail Blazers CEO Chris McGowan said in the release that it’s important for the team to involve fans in the redesign process:

“This will be one of the most visible changes we’ve made to our arena in over a decade, so it’s important that we involve our fans in the decision-making process. Conducting the contest on trailblazers.com and enlisting the help of Rip City is going to be a lot of fun and I am excited to start seeing the submissions.”

Along with the aforementioned courtside seats, the winning designer will also receiver some autographed merchandise and a customized souvenir. Now go start creating!
