Somehow, we’re already at the third installment of this weekly article, meaning we’ve highlighted 10 different courts, already. For those who may be seeing this piece for the first time, this is our chance to honor the amazing community who makes it possible for us to have a game and show them some love. Since we announced the ability for players to create their own courts to use in The One, we’ve seen customization and creativity reach new heights.
Some people created courts that honored their heritage or communities, others made courts that showed love to their favorite teams and players, all of them showed that basketball doesn’t have any out-of-bounds lines as it pertains to life, though. Basketball is so spread across people’s daily thought processes and, even in a video game, can drive us to show emotions of pride or a plethora of other emotions and intentions – some of these created courts really give a personal meaning to their creators, and that’s so genuinely appreciated by us here at NBA LIVE.
To start, @1hwgaming brought out the top court of the week for us with this one. Like I mentioned, basketball and gaming extends further than just a court or a controller and your TV. The green in this court, for example, is representing Cerebral Palsy Awareness, a disability that affects movement, muscle tone, or posture, among other potential effects. In an effort to spread more awareness to the disorder, you can learn more about Cerebral Palsy here. Shout out to 1 HW Gaming, who has this disease, for beating people on his court, despite only having one hand!
Our guy @FlyGuyGbG brought out the love in time for the new Spiderman game! Which is your favorite court? I think the Venom court has to be my favorite one here, but that’s something I’ve been battling with since I saw this court.
Talk about creativity – @jbo_919 brought us a glass of lemonade with this court. Adding sweet spot and lemon drop to the writing on the court really just solidified this for me – everyone knows I love my candy.
Different brands out there have dominated the fashion scene for years now, and two of then, Supreme and BAPE, are starting to even come out in created courts, now! @TeamWoozie shows love to all they hypebeasts with this one.
You guys knew the below had to be included! @TheNLSC flexed their O.G. (Original Gamer) status with this court re-creating The Hangar, NBA LIVE 10’s practice court. Not that they needed to prove anything, but you definitely don’t need to wonder whether they’ve been playing all these years.
Choosing only five courts is so hard to do – there’s an entire list of courts I’m itching to throw in week-to-week! Keep uploading your courts and we’ll find them. Stay tuned for next week’s Courts of the Week!
