Best Basketball Stadiums: Staples and MSG

The Staples Center, located in Los Angeles, California, is the home court of three teams: the Lakers, the Clippers, and the Kings. It contains a total of 12 locker rooms and changing rooms, with rooms specifically designated for each of the three home teams. Having opened in October 1999, it is a fairly new facility with a lot of new technology. There are 1,200 television monitors throughout the facility, and viewers can choose from 23 different refreshment stands in five separate concourse areas (there are also two arena restaurants). The stadium seats 19,000 people for a basketball game.

Madison Square Garden has been the name of four separate stadiums in New York, the original being the Garden itself. The Garden, as it’s called in short, is home to the New York Knicks, as well as the New York Liberty (of the WNBA). It also hosts the home games of the Red Storms (St. John’s college basketball team) and is, in fact, one of the busiest venues in the United States, hosting a total of 320 events each year. For a standard game of basketball, the arena seats 19,763 and features 20,976 square feet of space.
