Phoenix Suns Court Images

Post by Indy » Mon Mar 01, 2021 4:47 pm

Does anyone know where to get a high res (or better yet, vector image) of the Phoenix Suns court? I am really not even picky about which court. I am looking for a top-down view so I can use it as a background to the plexiglass backboard I have up in my office.

This is the best I can find online, and it isn't great.

Ooh. That will be cool. Show us pictures once you've got it.

I really want to put up a small nerf hoop in our living room. For some reason my wife doesn’t like the idea at all.

My son has one of those smaller pop-a-shot dual hoops from Costco in his bedroom, and another mini hoop you can dunk on (has a steel rim, but is half-size). But I can't be on conference calls from his bedroom, so I need one in here for my sanity.

And 'Dack, maybe if you made it match your living room décor she would be more into it. ;)

Aside from having a basketball hoop mounted on the wall in her living room I think she is more afraid of me breaking things. I have a real hoop in the ground next to the pool that I shoot baskets at all the time and I still manage to break things. She has a small statue of a boy and a girl together holding an umbrella. I had to glue his arm back on after an errant shot. She planted these nice flowers in a round container just larger than a basketball and I managed to crush half the flowers in another errant shot that landed perfectly in that basket.

LOL. I hear you. I might have taken out a lego x-wing from my son's room.

My HOA won't allow hoops out front, and my backyard doesn't have a good spot right now. I guess I should get one of the pool ones. Or I am thinking about ripping out my spa and putting a sport court in there.

My next house is going to have at least a half court with a built in hoop.

That is what I said before buying this one. But we had 1 day to look, found a place in our preferred school district in a great neighborhood, and had to move. The house at the end of the street has a full half-court in the backyard (but it is painted with Lakers colors, so I think I am going to burn it down).

What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

You should transfer it brick by brick during the night to your house and repaint it with Suns colors. You have my permission.

I highly recommend the pool one. Nothing better than being in the pool in the summer shooting hoops. It’s actually good exercise, fun and gosh darn it, people like it.

Thanks.

I found this guy's flickr gallery which is amazing. But he disabled downloads.

Suns start on page 2, and continue on page 3.

Which one do you specifically want? I can work my magic and get it downloaded for you.

Since were on the subject, there was a Kevin Johnson "Lithograph" I had as a teenager that I cant find online.

It was basically a high res drawing of KJ driving to the hoop and Jason Kidd is watching in the background.

Anyone else remember this?
