Which color to paint walls of indoor basketball court


What color and brand of paint would you recommend for a garage converted to an indoor basketball court.
The ceiling is flat white and the floor is laminate see attached pic (note pic is not of actual garage but shows the flooring)


Preferably something which is bright and cheery (ideally a blue shade like the Orlando Magic basketball team or the blue in the NY Knicks jersey - see attached pics) but will stand up to abuse & fingerprints.

The walls are 10' high, but I was thinking of painting up to 6' for better effect.

thx

How you planning to light this court.

Walls could take a beating unless you all have Michael Jordan swish skills.

I would use a silicone reinforced paint product or urethane reinforced porch and floor paint on the walls for this. Porch and floor paint will come factory mixed in a rainbow of colors. Or you can have real paint company brands tinted.

Add touch up paint maintenace to your regular chore list. Even a clean basketball is going to mark even a urethane or even silicon wall.

Lighting will be flourescent
I found that Glidden paints has NBA team colors at Home Depot.
Glidden sells porch and floor paint http://www.glidden.com/collections/a...o?retailer=all
though it doesn't say if it's urethane reinforced.
Also, will the colors still match the NBA colors or being different paint ruins that?

thx
