The Clippers have a lease to play in the Staples Center through the 23-24 NBA season. One has to figure if they win an NBA championship as many are predicting now that they have Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, they just might want their own arena.
1. They with success could become the big dog in Staples Center, demand a sweet deal and extend there. 2. There still is land available in the LA area for sweet new arena.
3. Yes, that Forum, the “Fabulous Forum, site of so many Laker titles and a place always looking for new tenants. Ironically The Forum is owned by Madison Square Garden Company, yes that company that owns the Garden and Knicks. 4. Have to put this in, it is an unpredictable world, just maybe Steve Ballmer will say I own the Clippers and I don’t want to be in same town as the Lakers, we are moving back to my hometown of Seattle.
