Where do the Lakers Play Staples Center

Staples Center

The Los Angeles Lakers play at the Staples Center. Following the 1998-1999 season, the Lakers moved from the Great Western Forum to the Los Angeles Staples Center located at 1111 South Figueroa Street Los Angeles, California, 90015 and has a capacity for 18,320 for a Lakers home game. The Staples Center complex is 950,000 square feet and was opened on October 17th, 1999 by the AEG. Although the Staples Center is the home of Lakers it also is the home of the Los Angeles Kings, Los Angeles Clippers, LA Sparks and has numerous other concerts and sporting events throughout the year.

For the move to the Staples Center, the Lakers wanted a new coach, and they got their man in Phil Jackson. It was Jackson who was finally able to deliver a championship for Shaq and Kobe, making them work together.

Even though the Lakers have won the same amount of titles in the Staples Center as in the Forum, one can make an argument for the Staples being the more successful home arena. During the years of the Staples, the Lakers won the title in the first year at the Staples Center.the Lakers managed to win three titles in a row, something that they haven’t done in the Forum.

Where did Lakers used to play?

Minneapolis Armory Lakers court

Minneapolis Armory

Many people forget that the Los Angeles Lakers actually started their storied franchise history in Minneapolis. Ben Berger and Morris Chalfen were the original owners of the Lakers, buying the team in 1947. They disbanded the Detroit Gems, and then started the Lakers franchise with an investment of just $15,000. Back then, the league was called National Basketball League or NBL. The name Lakers comes from the nickname of the city of Minnesota, “the land of 10,000 Lakes”. Led by center George Mikan, who became the NBA’s first superstar, the Lakers won the title in the first two years in the league. It is worth noting, that the first title came in the Basketball Association of America (BAA). Lakers are one of the six teams remaining from the original BAA league that merged with the NBL to form the NBA.

2016 nba playoffs teams to watch

2016 NBA Playoffs Six Teams To Watch

2016 NBA Playoffs Six Teams To Watch

With one more month until the 2016 NBA playoffs start, the race in both the East and West is as close as ever. The 8th and the 9th seed in the East are separated by half a game, with the 6th seed also only two games in front of 9th seed. In the West, the difference between the 8th and 9th seed is only two games, making the stretch run extremely interesting. Here are six teams that should become more and more interesting as the 2016 NBA playoffs approach.

Detroit Pistons

The Pistons went all in at the trade deadline, getting Tobias Harris from Orlando Magic to form a “mini Big-Three” with Drummond, Reggie Jackson and Harris. And while some people expected quick results, in reality, Detroit is playing 50% basketball since the trade. But that might be a good thing. The good news for the Pistons is they have only 7 more games on the road. But the bad news is they have lots of games against direct competition, starting with two games against the Wizards, a game against Chicago, two against the Hornets, and then some against higher tier Eastern teams: 2 against Atlanta, 2 against Miami, and one against Cleveland. The Wizards game are extremely important, since Washington leads the season series 2:0, and one more win will ensure the Wizards the tiebreaker. Detroit Pistons tickets for the 2016 NBA playoffs games start at just $35.00 per ticket.

Washington Wizards

Speaking of the Wizards, they are 2 and a half games outside of the playoff picture, but they can make up ground by beating the Pistons. Detroit is not in the playoffs, but they are just half a game behind Chicago for the 8th spot. The biggest challenge for the Wizards will be the Atlanta Hawks, as they have three more games against the 5th best team in the East at the moment. The good news, however, is they have several games against bottom feeders left: 2 against the Nets, 1 versus Phoenix, one versus Lakers, one versus Knicks, and one versus Sixers. Get Washington Wizards tickets for their 2016 NBA playoff games today.

Chicago Bulls

The Bulls got Jimmy Butler back, but it might be too late. Sitting at the 8th spot, with just half a game lead is not something that Chicago envisioned at any point during the season. The Bulls were supposed to fight with Cleveland for East supremacy, but that hasn’t happened yet. And it doesn’t get easier down the road with only 8 home games left. Opponent wise, the Bulls have one more game against the Cavs, one against the Raptors, two versus the Heat, one with the Pistons, one with Indiana, one with San Antonio and one with Washington. The silver lining is that the Bulls will decide their own fate, with games against direct opponents like Washington, Indiana, and Detroit. Chicago Bulls schedule for their 2016 NBA Playoffs games at the United Center start at just $85.00 per ticket.

Portland Trail Blazers

Let’s start from the good news. The Blazers are currently at the 6th spot in the West, despite losing every player of their starting lineup from last season not named Damian Lillard. They have no chance of getting the 5th spot, but staying at 6 is very plausible scenario. Now, for the bad news. Take a look at their schedule: 2 more versus Golden State, 2 more versus OKC, one versus San Antonio, one versus Clippers. That is six games against the top 4 teams in the West. And to top it that, they have 2 more games against Dallas, a team that is just half a game behind them in the standings. The Blazers will likely make the playoffs, but staying at 6th spot gives them a chance against an OKC team that doesn’t look as scary as the Warriors and Spurs. Portland Trail Blazers tickets for the 2016 NBA Playoffs begin at just $25.00 per ticket.
