Best part is none of these Laker fans on here know what the forum is



It is where we won titles in 1972, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987 and 1988.

Being a Clippers fan I wouldn’t expect you to know anything about championships of any kind

The Great Western Forum (as it was known) is and always will be known as the home of showtime.

And yes, laker fans will continue to outnumber clipper fans no matter where they play

As will every other team that plays in that arena.

I don’t think this will work out the way Ballmer thinks it will.

The Clippers have a higher home attendance then the Lakers

Classic Fakers. Staples is a dump

Does it though?

How can one area support two large venues? Will the Forum be an exclusive host to concerts? There seems to be a lot of venues competing for those acts in LA

Trash talk aside I do like how they plan on setting this up. Glad they are investing in the Forum also.

Good move for everyone

Maybe do similar to what MSG does. Albeit the big acts go to the main MSG.
But they have a smaller theatre/the Hulu theatre part of it which has smaller acts

Again, the reason for the sale was to eliminate James Dolan's potential litigation about a new arena.

quote:

"I have talked to Jim Dolan and Steve Ballmer about that lawsuit," Silver said at the time. "Obviously, it's not something you like to see between partners in the NBA. I don't think there's a role for the league at the moment, but it's something that we're paying a lot of attention to."

I went to The Forum for a Kings game back in the day when I was a kid, even though the arena itself wasn't anything special you definitely felt like it was a historic place.
