Steve Ballmer , owner of Clippers wants to build a new arena for his team, using his own money, the site being in the city of Inglewood. Something to think about.
1. You may or may not know, James Dolan owner of the Knicks, well his company owns the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, the former home of Lakers. Dolan has previously brought legal challenges to any new arena and is sure to do so again when it comes to city of Inglewood.
2. The new arena will open in 2024 if it goes forward, about the time or close when many of present Clippers’ stars will be close or have expiring contracts. Could Clippers get bad again?
3. If this hits a legal snag, would Ballmer move the Clippers to his home area of Seattle, where a beautiful new Key Arena would await?
