Los Angeles California La Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers unveiled their proposed $1.1 billion arena for the NBA team in Inglewood on Thursday and announced last Thursday that they plan to open a new, state-of-the-art $2.5 billion, 30,000-seat arena by 2024, when the team's current lease at Staples Center expires. IngLEwood is located about 12 miles southwest of Los Angeles and borders Hollywood Park, which is due to be completed next year. IngLEwood will be the new home of the Clippers, as well as the LA Kings and the L.A. Lakers. The new arena, the first of its kind in the United States, has a much larger footprint than that which has existed for nearly a century.
The Clippers are in the Pacific Division and share the arena with the Los Angeles Lakers, the LA Kings and the L.A. Clippers. The Clippers Arena site at the Forum is only separated by the surrounding development, which is being built on the site of the former Forum parking garage.
The city hosted both the Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers at the Forum until the two franchises moved to Staples Center in downtown LA at the beginning of the 1999-2000 season and again in 2000-2001.
In 1984, the City of Angels moved to a new stadium, Staples Center in downtown LA, home to the Los Angeles Clippers.
Levin, who lived in Southern California, moved the franchise to San Diego and renamed it the Clippers. He sold the team to Donald Sterling, who moved it 120 miles north to Los Angeles, but kept the name "Clippers." The Clippers moved from San Diego to L.A. in 1984 and first appeared at Staples Center when the world fell in on LA during the Summer Olympics. They played at Qualcomm Center for the first three years of the 1984-85 season before moving to Staples Center.
The powerful, you would think, would be announcing their return for next season. Instead, the defending champions forgot to wink during a preseason game, and they're back in Los Angeles for their first game in three years.
Just when it looked like the LA Clippers were ready to take the next step and step into the shadows of Staples Center for the first time in three years, the Denver Nuggets come to give us the "never say never give up" and spoil the party. As for the rivalries, they won't get any bigger than the Clippers against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Clippers have played basketball in the city since the 1990s, and the center has been in the capital since 1999. Real estate mogul Donald Sterling brought her to LA from New York after buying the franchise, and they have played basketball there ever since, except for a brief stint in San Antonio, which they called their home from 1997 to 2000.
In the late 1960s, the Anaheim Amigos, an incredible name, moved to Los Angeles and changed their name to LA Stars and then back to Anaheim.
Although Donald Sterling's dictatorship has ended, the Clippers remain in Los Angeles like every other NBA team.
