A standard tennis court - fence to fence is 120' x 60'. A standard basketball court - 94' x 50'. So it's possible, however, I'd hate to play on a blacktop or sport court surface. I can't see them putting down hardwood.

The NBA players can't shoot as it is -- you think a gentle breeze in the stadium would help?

Well if the NBA players don't, i'm sure we could always get the And1 guys to play on a blacktop. Probably be a little more entertaining to watch then the pros.
