#3 NBA: United Center (Chicago Bulls)

United Center

Picture by Gavindow

The United Center is located in Chicago IL and is home to the Chicago Bulls.  The United Center opened in 1994 as a replacement to the Chicago Stadium.  This arena ranks #3 on my NBA list because of capacity and history.  Many of the greats in the NBA have played there including the best, Michael Jordan.  When the United Center opened, Micheal and the Bulls were in the midst of their great run coming off 3 straight championships.  The United Center is currently the largest arena in the NBA with a seating capacity of 20,917.   Their attendance is being low over the past couple of years but they still do get large crowds for select games.  They just went through a renovation last summer to make the court and features look more modern with updates to the the video boards and new seats.
