Let's create a buzz for this new floor design (images included)
I have designed a basketball floor specifically for the New Orleans Hornets. This new floor will generate recognition for the Hornets comparable to the Boston Celtics' world-famous parquet floor. In the shape of wood hexagons, this parquet Honeycomb Floor (U.S. Patent DES. 433,164) is unique to ONLY the New Orleans Hornets.
Personnel from the Hornets, including Mr. Ray Wooldridge, have seen - and have liked - the Honeycomb Floor concept drawings, as have personnel from the NBA and the New Orleans Arena. In order to make this floor a reality, the Hornets have to formally present this design to the NBA and the NBA would need to approve the design. (Obviously if the logo and colors are tweaked, the Honeycomb Floor design would be tweaked to match.)
Another unique feature, the "Honeycomb Ownership Program," would give diehard New Orleans Hornets' Fans the opportunity to actually own a piece of what undoubtedly will become the best branded and most recognizable floor in the NBA.
Let's all create the BUZZ needed to make this floor happen for the 2002 inaugural season in New Orleans!
