We've went to Staples Center 3 times in January for 2 Lakers games and 1 Clippers game. Staples is an excellent venue for basketball (and probably for anything else). The organisation is good, that staff are helpful and the facility is clean.

I'd definitely recommend a visit for a basketball game

Staples has brought moving large crowds in and out of the arena almost a non-event. Entering and exiting the facility is rather easy, even with security check points. Parking in the parking structure at LA Live is not the best option, so pay $25 and park at the lot on the corner of Figueroa and Chick Hearn. The arena staff is professional and Stapes itself looks pretty good considering all of its use over the past decade. A few more restaurant selections could make it even better. Always good celebrity watching, even if you are not that into it.

Staples is a huge complex--love when we go to the box--fantastic dessert cart will NOT disappoint you..it is like a circus on wheels! Food is okay, but the venue is great. You will see stars, celebrities and neighbors all in the same night! Concerts are great, easy to get in and out and of course tons of restaurants and fun places to go before and after the game or show!

While the Lakers are though of as kings the Clippers might be able to steal the throne. Section 331 front row right on top of the home team tunnel. Never a problem. Great view of the court. Get to the game 30 minutes before hand and you can buy a meal deal at a price savings.
Bottled water is allowed in the place unlike the Honda Center. Take the Metro Blue Line to the venue and get off right outside and skip the freeway and parking mess. Street vendors selling hot dogs and sausages with grilled onions on the sidewalk when you leave. Skid Row is right down the street if you need any party favors. Clippers Nation.
