The Staples Center is located in Los Angeles CA and is home to both the LA Lakers and LA Clippers.  I chose this arena as my #5 on my NBA list because of it’s fan experience and location.  The Staples Center used for two different NBA teams which makes it well used.  It’s seating capacity is 19,060 which is about average for NBA venues.  It’s location is key to it’s success because it it located directly in downtown Los Angeles which gets many people’s attention.  The technology is also good for have been built in 1999.  They have two different setups for both teams so it requires a lot of technology such as different light arrangements and different court setup. They also have a very large HD video board that shows both outward and downward
