The Washington Wizards will play on a new Cherry blossom-themed basketball court, starting tomorrow against the Dallas Mavericks. It is directly tied to when the Wizards wear their City Edition jerseys, which are cherry blossom-themed.

The Wizards will wear their City Edition jerseys on the dates below:

  • Nov. 10 vs. Dallas Mavericks
  • Dec. 4 vs. Los Angeles Lakers
  • Dec. 12 vs. Brooklyn Nets
  • Mar. 2 vs. Toronto Raptors
  • Mar. 6 vs. Milwaukee Bucks
  • Mar. 8 vs. Atlanta Hawks
  • Mar. 22 vs. Denver Nuggets
  • Mar. 24 vs. San Antonio Spurs
  • Mar. 28 vs. Boston Celtics
  • Apr. 4 vs. Milwaukee Bucks

I like the look of a cherry blossom themed-court. It’s a little peculiar that the Wizards will start to wear the jerseys in late fall. But the reality is that the regular season is almost over when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom during late March to early April.

ESPN’s Zach Lowe also has a feature on how the Wizards ultimately came up with their design.
