When it comes to NBA court designs, it's all about the details. The Lakers, for example, added 16 stars around their center court logo in 2012 to represent all of the championships the franchise has won.
Try to do too much, however, and there can be some far less appealing results.
Here's a ranking of every team's primary home court design for the 2016-17 season.
Oklahoma City Thunder
We all know that the Thunder's primary logo is among the worst in the league, but let's talk about another aspect of the team's home court that doesn't get nearly the attention it deserves. Oklahoma City is one of the smallest market in the league, and in an attempt to try to show everyone that it belongs, the Thunder are the only franchise that has NBA logos placed at both ends of the floor on the playing surface.
If Blake Griffin and/or Chris Paul leave the Clippers in free agency this summer, the team's primary logo design will almost certainly be the reason why.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans faced an uphill battle when they decided in 2013 on the new primary logo you see at center court. And the shading inside the three-point arc reminds us more of a spider than it does a bird clutching a basketball.
You may assume that very little thought went into one of the league's more basic court designs, but you'd be wrong: The Pistons changed the lettering along the baseline this season, so someone in Detroit is in fact actually thinking about this.
The color blocking works for sure, but that big, dumb and angry-looking cartoon bear at center court definitely needs to go.
Much like the Grizzlies, the Timberwolves' problem is the large animal head logo sitting at center court. Thankfully, the team is scheduled to reveal a brand new look on April 11.
Houston's home court design is fine, unless you like the color red. Then, it's fantastic.
The Mavericks held a design contest for their new court last season, but as far as we can tell, the results haven't been made available online. Supposedly it was announced at a recent home game, but we'll reserve judgment until the images begin to surface.
The Pacers celebrated their 50th season by dropping a 50 logo on the floor, but other than that one addition, the court design at Bankers Life Fieldhouse remains one of the more subtle in the league.
We still have no idea what "We the North" is supposed to mean, so seeing it so prominently displayed knocks this one down a few notches. At least they got rid of that weird baseline signage that could only be viewed properly on TV.
We have just four words to say about the Wizards' choice of both nickname and logo:
Bring back the Bullets.
The Sixers used a partial primary logo at center court, and it was a better choice than going with the full logo that has the word Philadelphia and 6 stars encircling it in a blue border. It's a cleaner look, and one that goes much better with the new uniforms the team unveiled in the summer of 2015.
The Magic emulated the success of the storied Celtics with the use of the parquet floor design, but it hasn't been the good luck charm the franchise had hoped for. Orlando has never won a title in its 28-year existence, and will miss the playoffs in 2017 for a fifth consecutive season.
New York Knicks
The Knicks ditched the orange in the paint for the more classic blue look in advance of the 2015-16 NBA season, and it was a move in the right direction.
Portland Trail Blazers
A classic look for a classic team logo that has changed very little over the years. Clean and simple, without being boring. No complaints here.
The Kings play in a brand new arena, with a home court design that is subtle enough to where it definitely works. But the team is going to miss the playoffs for an 11th straight season, and after trading DeMarcus Cousins for pennies on the dollar two years too late, the franchise is in as bad of a situation as it's ever been.
This would be a lot better without the four small bulls head logos all over the court. Eliminate those, and we can talk.
San Antonio Spurs
At 25 feet tall and 20 feet wide, the Spurs have the largest center court logo in the league. The overall design details are nonexistent beyond that, though we can understand the model franchise in all of professional sports choosing to focus its resources elsewhere.
The combination of the classic Pac-Man logo and the futuristic font with neon accents makes for one of the league's more interesting looks.
After going with a black-and-orange look for a bit, the Suns brought back the purple border that is more in line with the team's traditional scheme. The fact that the season ticket holders' names appear in the "We Are" section just below center court is a very nice touch.
The Bucks have one of the league's niftier looks, thanks to some nods to the team's history. The 'M' patterns on each end of the floor are a tribute to the team's former MECCA home of the 70s, as is the blue border around the outside. The alternate court in Milwaukee is pretty nice, too.
The big addition in Charlotte this season was the brand new scoreboard, and an initial image of it caused a stir among fans because it showed a court without the honeycomb design. It was just a placeholder, however, while the actual court was in the process of being re-finished.
Golden State Warriors
The team's primary colors help this one a lot, as the yellow really pops during those nationally televised games. The mostly simple design works, too, but the red in the Oracle logo detracts a bit from the purer overall aesthetic.
The NBA used to have large logos on the court during the playoffs and Finals, but stopped with that a couple of years ago, presumably as a player safety concern. The Cavaliers brought back the idea this season by adding the Larry O'Brien Trophy inside the smaller 'C' logos that appear at each end of the floor. No word on whether they'll leave those there if they don't end up repeating as champions.
The Heat have one of the league's cleaner looks, and we still can't get over the way the flaming basketball at center court manages to look almost three-dimensional as its dropping through that weird white hoop.
The floor design in Utah is brand new this season, with the tri-colored ball logo paying homage to the team's previous homes at the Salt Palace and Delta Center. The partial J-notes at each end of the court are a nice touch.
Denver's design has been in place since last season, and it's a good one. The pick axes inside the three-point line look great, as does the navy blue border around the outside.
Can you guess what the 5,280/300 numbers mean?
The first references the altitude in the Mile High City, and the second is the historical average of 300 days of sunshine per year that the city experiences.
The herringbone pattern on the Nets floor is as unique as it gets, and the basic black coloring along with the circular logo make for the league's cleanest look. Now, if they could just do something about that on-court product ...
Los Angeles Lakers
STAPLES Center looks great on TV, especially with the theatre-style lighting that darkens most of the audience. Fun fact: Since adding those championship stars around the center court logo, L.A. hasn't won a playoff game, and has missed the postseason four years straight.
One look at the home floor in Boston reminds you of so much NBA history that it's no wonder the team is reluctant to make any changes. The parquet floor and the same primary logo that's been in existence since the beginning make the Celtics' look one of the league's most special.
