The home stadium of the famous Los Angeles Laker and the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA, and also host to several events throughout the year.
If you're in Los Angeles during the NBA season, and you're into basketball at all, you just cannot miss the chance of a game at the Staples Center. It is one of the most famous NBA arenas, and the atmosphere on game day is absolutely electric. If you're visiting during the off season, you might get lucky since the Staples Center is also one of LA's favourite arenas for concerts of international artists, many of whom have performed here more than once like Madonna, and the arena has even hosted the Grammys and the VMAs in 2012 and is the only venue which has hosted both the ceremonies in the same year. The Staples Center is a part of the L.A. Live development area, which was established to serve as a wonderful hub of activities and entertainment.
