Atlanta Hawks are one of the most popular franchises in the NBA although their success isn’t anywhere near their popularity. While the Hawks may not have a trophy cabinet laden with trophies, they are reputed to have one of the best courts in the NBA. The organization redesigned the facility in 2007, and since then it has become one of the top arenas in the league. The court is now appealing to the naked eye as it is on television.

According to bleacherreport.com The Boston Celtics are one of the two teams with the most NBA titles in the history of the league. They jointly hold the record for the most number of NBA titles (17) with the Los Angeles Lakers. The Celtics are truly one of the traditional teams in the league and their court is a reflection of that. They have stuck parquet flooring since the 1940s. While it is true that they haven’t made any significant changes to the court over the last few decades, the court still remains one of the most stylish.

Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors have one of the most modern courts in the league. Back in 2010, the San Francisco outfit made changes to their court and logo to infuse their team color of yellow and blue. The Warriors now have the Bay Bridge on their logo, but what is even more heartwarming is the hardwood floor.

Beyond the aesthetics of the court, the Warriors have a good chance of claiming another NBA title with the players on their roster. They have got Stephen Curry, Chris Paul, and Klay Thompson. All three players have been carrying the team and pundits are of the opinion that they are one of the favorites to win the title. As a matter of fact, bettors are backing San Francisco to go all the way this season. If that happens, bettors who are brave enough to back them could walk away with huge winnings.
