Also....the Clippers......

Pack your bags and get your asses to Seattle.

The Wood don't want you either.


Yes! (bleep) the Clippers!

You know intuit Dome sounds better than crypto.com arena…..

Was hoping some famous brand came through. Something like the Tesla center, etc, but i guess the don’t need more brand recognition. chase center sounded pretty good.

Crypto Arena is fine. Crypto.com Arena is two extra syllables. Too lengthy. I'm guessing if cryptos tank and crypto.com goes out of business, we'd have a new name?

Imagine having to explain the Bitcoin fad to your kid 15 years from now when you go to a Lakers home game.

They have no integrity, if they did it just for the money and not what they believe in.

Going from one of the cooler names for an arena to one of the worst...

Some worse ones I can think of lol:

Ball arena (Denver)
Footprint arena (Phoenix)
Smoothie King center (NO)

The Lakers don't own Staples Center, so I don't think we had much to say about it

I doubt crypto.com would have paid $700 million for that. No one would associate "Crypto Arena" with crypto.com specifically.

This is an advertisement designed for people to see and hear crypto.com it gets embedded in our brains. From a marketing standpoint, it's not a bad move.

Rob & Rich will probably have a new team building activity where they bring in motivational speakers to talk to the guys and will call it…Tales from the Krypt

First up…a tale from Adele

You think they called it "Staples Center" not just for the money, but because the really believed in toner cartridges?

"I’m told Staples Center will undergo a massive renovation following this record naming rights deal. AEG officials view this as Staples Center’s version of Madison Square Garden’s $1 billion renovation. Everything from the concourse to the seats to the concessions will be changed."

They are also doing a massive renovation as part of the deal.
