Was anyone else creeped out by the Toronto Raptors court design?

CREATED Feb 9, 2012

If you watched the Milwaukee Bucks play the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night, your eyes were more than likely drawn to the Raptors creative court design. I'm not talking about the center court logo, I'm talking about the trippy baseline RAPTORS sign that looked like an obstruction.

No, it was not an actual sandwich board sign. No, it was not a superimposed logo. It was, in fact, a 3-D paint job that had me wondering who spiked my Arnold Palmer.

After staring at the design for about two hours, I still wasn't 100% certain it was painted on. I think I even yelled "LOOK OUT!" as an official was running under the hoop.

I did some searching and found a link that has a couple pictures of what I'm talking about. There is even a short video that shows an up-close, nearly floor-level shot of the artwork.
