Oracle Arena is located in Oakland CA (Bay Area) and is home to the Golden State Warriors. Oracle is also known as Roaracle for the noise the fans bring every game.  The arena put up its 200th consecutive sellout.  This ranks #2 on my NBA arenas list because of fan experience and history.   Oracle Arena is the oldest arena in the NBA being built in 1966.  The Warriors have played at Oracle since it opened which makes the venue full of history.  It has gone through many renovations throughout the years to keep up with modern venues.  It has a capacity of 19,596 which makes it middle of the pack in the NBA for seat capacity.   It still holds the record for the loudest NBA game reaching 120 decibels which some say can actually be bad for your hearing.
