    Excellent sports arena!!! We went to see Lakers vs. Clippers, it was a very good game and even tough we were at the upper level, we had a great view of the game.

    Top Dining Options: WP24 on the 24th floor of the adjacent Ritz-Carlton tower; Yard House and LA Market are both located within L.A. Live, adjacent to the Staples Center. Read more

    The in spot to be at when sports and entertainment is happening in the area! Check out a concert or a Lakers game, but buy your tickets early so you're not left outside!

    Great venue. I enjoy most about this place is the public transportation TO it. Too many venues in LA do not have easy public access. This makes any event or game easy to get to and from.

    Be sure to look up at the rafters and appreciate the legends. 16 Lakers championship banners and 10 player jerseys have been retired. What a legacy

    STAPLES Center, has clearly established itself as the sports and entertainment center of the world. As the home of professional sports franchise Los Angeles Lakers.

    Other than great place to watch a game or concert, the plaza around staples has top notch places to eat from Japanese to american to trendy restaurants/bars! Fun entertainment and eateries

    This arena reminds me of many exhilarating moments, not the least of which was the time I managed to mend a frayed climbing rope in a pinch with some quickly applied staples.

    Tool - 9/7/2006. That was one of the most epic concerts I've ever had the privilege to attend. Wish i had pics or video to supplement the memories I have of that night.

    It pays to be a VIP member (AMEX preferred, Lexus, delta, San Manuel, etc).Great seats, shorter entrance line, and a private floor to buy food and souvenirs

    At the Staples Center, look for statues of Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Wayne Gretzky (although neither played here), Oscar de la Hoya, Jerry West and broadcaster Chick Hearn outside.

    Looking to go on a date? See a great basketball game? have fun with the family? Great place to see a basketball game. A lot of history, Laker tickets will be very expensive but a great atmosphere!

    My favourite basketball stadium in the US, the stadiums are a lot different to the ones in Australia it's amazing how the stands are so steep

    Check out the statue of basketball icon Jerry West. He has left his mark as a Laker, an Olympian, a West Virginia University Mountaineer, and as the silhouette of the NBA logo. Pretty impressive.

    i've only been here for hockey, but since it's not a hockey-specific arena, the upper levels are REAAAALLY far from the ice. Sit in lower level or in the center seats so you can see what's happening

    Wayne Gretzky never played here as a King, but his presence still lingers in the building. There’s a #99 sweater hanging from the rafters AND a Great One statue outside.

    Awesome!! They got bars and restaurants for the pre-game. And I think you can invest a little bucks to be in a better seat.

    The Lakers may reign supreme—but we can't help but notice some other guys seated courtside. Look for David Beckham, Leo DiCaprio and Zac Efron cheering on, and just try to keep your eye on the ball.
