Do you think the ACC should have more dynamic lighting akin to Staples or the Barclays center?
Chris: I wouldn’t be opposed to it, but I can’t say it’s atop my priority list for the Raptors, or Leafs for that matter. If MLSE finds some money lying around in one of their couches in their offices on 50 Bay Street and decide they want to use it to re-do the lighting in the ACC, by all means, go ahead. If not, I can’t say I’ll be upset about it.
Demar: Absolutely. Games at the ACC look too much like dudes in a gym versus an epic production. I know the Lakers play in Los Angeles, but dynamic lighting isn’t restricted to California.
The shots and dunks the Raptors can pull off are spectacular but aren’t treated as such. Dim the lights in the crowd and let the drama of the game seep into every bounce of the ball.
