I personally like it alot. The place is going to be great they dont shell out that type of money for a sub par arena. Prokhorov(sp), is trying to turn this franchise around and i commend him for that. Cant wait to catch a game at the expense of my wallet

It kinda feels cramped up, I dunno maybe it's a small arena but it looks like a theatre turned into a basketball arena. I like the exterior soccerish design though.

It has nothing to do with me being a Knick fan. I hate the Celtics more than I hate the Nets but I still find their arena great. I can't say that about Barclays Center. Ugly as hell.

I don't like the exterior design either. When I walked by the terminal while it was still in construction I thought the rusted look was only temporary, but nope. The weathering steel benefits seem exaggerated as well as it has its downsides. Believe me, it really is ugly as it seems. Usually I'd try to be biased and say that it looks better in person, but nooooope. Maybe it'll be decent when it opens at night with all the lighting inside. The concept picture actually looks really nice.

But for those who are hating on the interior design such as the court itself, wthell? What did you expect it to look like?

Maybe it will look better in an actual game. Preseason will start soon so we'll see how it looks like on TV.

The outside is ugly, it looks (on purpose) like it's old and rusted. People telling me it looks good are full of shit, do you walk around and see old rusted cars and think DAMN THAT LOOKS GOOD. SOmetimes trends baffle me, and the "let's make it rusted before it actually happens so that we are ahead of the curve" is one of them. And i've actually seen it many times, not just in photos.

Everything i've heard about the inside is that its fantastic though. And that's from people who have been given tours of the place.

It looks ugly and plain, but not overwhelming on the eyes(like some arenas/stadiums can be) so the plainness might be a blessing in disguise

Thats by design.

They way when they only get 14K in there to see the Nyets, they can claim they get 75% attendance.

i'm kind of curious because i get this vibe from people they like the shirts, think its cool there is a team in Brooklyn, have no desire to become bigger basketball fans or actually go. The Knick fans i know talk more about going (to see the Knicks or a low cost alternative to see the Lakers or Heat live).

Isn't that a good thing as a fan going there...you get to be closer to the court and have a better view.
