The Milwaukee Bucks, in their return-to-the-MECCA game tonight against the Boston Celtics, are playing on a completely new court that is designed to match the original 1970's-through-1980's Robert Indiana art deco design the Bucks and Marquette played on in that era.
Kyrie Irving, a Boston Celtics superstar, apparently didn't get the message.
Chris Forsberg, a Celtics beat reporter for ESPN, shared this video where Irving shared his thoughts about the court, seemingly intimating that he thought it was the original 40-year-old court.
Kyrie not thrilled with Mecca throwback court: “It took me 3 steps to realize this is not the same NBA court I'm used to playing on.” pic.twitter.com/UnFjSJDEsA

The Bucks later sub-tweeted Irving, as the reporter put it...
In case you need to tell someone…tonight’s #ReturntotheMECCA court is a brand new floor.
