How would a basketball team detract from a concert venue?


The arena decides to poach concerts from the Forum by offering organizers a cheaper fee. It won't matter if the Forum has better acoustics, if the promoter finds they can make more money they will move an event across the street to the newer arena.
Also read a report that the LA stadium business is very competitive, they have way more venues than events. If you look around the LA area, here are the venues that can hold around 20k+ concert goers

Rose Bowl
LA Coliseum
Staples Center
Stubhub Center
Forum
Dodger Stadium
Angel Stadium
Anaheim Pond

Upcoming:
Inglewood Stadium
Banc of California Stadium
Potential new Clippers Arena

Seriously?

Because that basketball team will play in a state-of-the-art arena that will only be booked 41 nights a year. What else are they gonna book there? Oh yeah, the same kinds of things the Forum does currently.

Gonna be interesting how this turns out. If MSG manages to win the lawsuit Ballmer will have to resume his search for a new arena. Also the mayor of Inglewood has egg on his face.

I think Balmer did it on purpose.

He loses the lawsuit. Then he plays the "I tried to stay in LA but was denied!" card. Then he moves team to Seattle. Everyone lives happily ever after, except for Clipper Darrel.

Bye.

No NBA team is going to move to the Key Arena no matter how they renovate it. That building has been renovated once before back in 1995 and it was outdated after 10 years. The arena is too small for modern day NBA teams. A renovated Key Arena proposal was floated before the Sonics moved to OKC If an NBA team is going back to Seattle it will be because they were able to build a brand new arena with all the latest amenities.

That is another proposal. Like I said the Key Arena renovations are dead for any NBA teams considering the design and capacity limitations of Key Arena.
