Technically, half those steps are in bounds. Has anyone tried a leaping shot from there?

It's trippy but the court doesn't look flat...at all. Would make for some interesting ball games.

Thought this was a video game at first glance.

Here's what it looked like [before the renovations.](https://www.google.com/maps/@48.8820509,2.3354393,3a,75y,357.46h,93.19t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sWQSbBNbH-dNKHDarqrnGEQ!2e0!5s20120501T000000!7i13312!8i6656) And here [again in 2015.](https://i.imgur.com/DXiHRrA.jpg)

I think this was done as part of Nike's collaboration with Pigalle.

According to [here](https://www.thisiscolossal.com/2017/06/a-technicolor-basketball-court-emerges-in-paris/): > In a unique collaboration between French fashion brand Pigalle and design agency Ill-Studio, the Paris Duperré basketball court was recently redesigned and repainted with a vibrant new color scheme. The narrow basketball court is nestled between two apartment buildings in the 9th arrondissement and has become a backdrop of sorts for unconventional color schemes, the first of which appeared in 2015. Photos courtesy Alex Penfornis and Sébastien Michelini. Also, it [used to](https://www.dezeen.com/2015/08/12/pigalle-duperre-ill-studio-paris-basketball-court-multicoloured-installation/) look like [this](https://static.dezeen.com/uploads/2015/08/Pigalle-Duperre-by-Ill-Studio_dezeen_784_16.jpg). [Here](https://goo.gl/maps/3CgLKLJZ3Vx) it is on Google Street View. Back in May 2015 it [looked like this](https://goo.gl/maps/SQtQiM9VXvG2). In May 2012 it looked [like this](https://goo.gl/maps/eRFwUpadv792).

How long until that vibrant paint fades?

The Pigalle Duperré is sandwiched into a row of buildings in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. Here is another image of this basketball court: https://i.imgur.com/KPXJ29T.jpg

Foul. Two shots from the free throw... dot?
16 Apr 2018 21:25 - +45
Nothing a little spit shine wouldn't fix!

Looks like something "The artist formerly known as Prince" would dunk at.
16 Apr 2018 20:51 - +21
Looks like something from a wacky video game.
16 Apr 2018 23:45 - +18
Ah I took a [very different photo of this place](https://i.imgur.com/XOv3r1p.jpg) when I last visited paris!
16 Apr 2018 22:25 - +17
Getting Splatoon vibes
16 Apr 2018 20:50 - +16
That's purty
16 Apr 2018 22:06 - +15
"Let's put stairs in play in the court, but disorient the players with trippy colors and scheme! What could go wrong?"
16 Apr 2018 21:35 - +11
It's a real shame this kind of color scheme isn't more common outside some video games.
16 Apr 2018 22:20 - +10
Features in this too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQTsZGvVUbs
16 Apr 2018 21:15 - +10
Sort of looks narrow but I'll bet it's regulation. At least you don't have to go far to get your ball with those huge walls on both sides
16 Apr 2018 23:43 - +8
r/bisexual colours in there...
16 Apr 2018 21:52 - +8
Deceivingly dangerous. I imagine a few folks have gotten injured there.
16 Apr 2018 22:32 - +8
Heavy /r/outrun vibes
16 Apr 2018 22:27 - +7
Those darn squidlings never clean up after they battle...
16 Apr 2018 22:16 - +7
The court is crooked. This makes me uneasy.

Reminds me so much of the Court in Dave and Aj Tracey's- Thiago Silva
16 Apr 2018 22:39 - +4
That looks like the one from Dave's music video on Thiago Silva
16 Apr 2018 23:34 - +4

Where is this in Paris?
16 Apr 2018 21:52 - +3
Is it the camera... or is the right line severely angled.
16 Apr 2018 22:44 - +3
north philly needs this sort of thing.. lots of empty spaces from demolished townhouses.
16 Apr 2018 22:23 - +3
I didn't know Space Jam was filmed in Paris.
16 Apr 2018 22:34 - +2
I loved playing on fancy colored courts as a kid. Made the whole game feel more real and professional.

Damn they’re really stepping up mycourt for 2k19
16 Apr 2018 22:35 - +2
It's easy, free throws are right at the transition from fuschia to puce.

Uh oh... I think the 80's are coming back
