it's MUCH harder shooting outdoors. The shooting background is enormous, the rims are usually more bouncy on outdoor courts, and there is usually some combination of wind/sun working against you..........

^^but the fresh air is much better than the air inside a gym

they could easily take the court from an arena and build it up in a stadium,the wind/sun wouldnt even matter unless the player doesnt know how to adjust

The players will complain about the lack of HD tvs in the locker rooms, no spa, and nobody to tie bandages around their feet and chests before games.

well you cant use a wood floor outdoors. even on a sunny day/dry night the elements would still probably affect the traction.

a nice, clean concrete court is the best way to go unless there's some new composite floor i dont know about. just use the materials they use for tennis hard courts. "Rebound Ace" material.

as far as wind, having massive seating around the court might make the wind worse. turn on CBS and look at the biggest tennis stadium on earth. it actually traps wind in there sometimes and causes havoc. but who cares. its 1 game. Arthur Ashe Stadium would actually be a great place...

^^wood outside on a 70 degree day means much of nothing,but that rebound ace material you mentioned would be a nice idea but they'd have to run a test game on it to make sure that no ankle injuries could come from it

its hilarious that we're getting so technical about this, but the pro-tennis court materials would work just fine.

theres' more footwork/cutting in tennis than basketball so its obviously safe for players. probably the best surface for players bodies.
