Grey court

That's the basketball court at Laurence Square (corner Napoleon and Magazine) this morning.  Yesterday it received a pressure wash and coat of grey primer paint.

This was last done back during the summer of 2012 when the court was refurbished and rebranded by Richard's Disposal and the then New Orleans Hornets.

Signage near the court commemorates the dedication in a happy comic sans typeface beneath the now lost to history "Fleur-de-Bee" logo.

Wither the fleur de bee?

Just a few short months after this court was painted, the Hornets announced they would become the New Orleans Pelicans in 2013.  The newly painted court stayed the same, though. I wonder if they're fixing that today.
