As far as I know, row 1 in any part of the 300s should be unobstructed, it's the edge of the terrace. There's probably a 15-20 ft drop from Row 1 to the 200s below.
I've watched at least 4-5 games from 315 & 314 (and maybe 306? can't remember), and the seats are still awesome. It feels like you're on top of the court, you can still hear the players at times too. I've watched 1 game in the 318 section (perpendicular to the court) in similar rows, and for whatever reason, the court seems more distant. I can't explain why, but my experiences seem different from the poster above me. Whatever section you end up with I'd suggest definitely going for row 1.
