Top 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 dressing rooms, with specifically designated rooms for each of the three home teams. Having opened in October of 1999, it is a fairly new facility with lots of new technology. There are 1,200 television monitors throughout the facility, and spectators can choose from 23 different refreshment stands in five separate concourse areas (there are also two restaurants in the arena). The arena accommodates just short of 19,000 people for a basketball game.

Madison Square Garden has been the name of four separate arenas in New York, with the original having been in the Garden itself. The Garden, as it is referred to in short, is the home of the New York Knicks, as well as the New York Liberty (of the WNBA). It also houses home games for the Red Storms (St. John’s college basketball team) and is actually 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 floor space.
