Blazers open voting on court design to fans

Crowdsourcing is a pretty popular way for teams to engage with their fans. The Mavericks did it with their possible jerseys in the coming years. Northwestern opened up voting on their new court’s design — the court that won, did not actually get chosen.

The Blazers are the latest to go the crowdsourcing route.

Portland’s Moda Center will sport a two-toned court, but which one is up to the fans to decide, as the Blazers twitter account announced Thursday.

Fans can log on and choose from three different tonal designs with regular wood color and a darker gray-shaded wood color. There are also different lane designs and colorations, but the main thing fans will choose is where the tonal shades of the court will go.

Fans enjoy these little diversions and it distracts, for a moment, from the Blazers struggles on the court. They should still be in the Playoffs and may do so for years in the future on the court the fans choose this spring.
