Was just asking the question. You and C2 really went to town on this.

RE: Will the Clippers join the Rams and Chargers in Inglewood?
Here we go: Clippers have entered into an exclusive negotiating agreement with the City of Inglewood to construct an arena across the street from Kroenke-ville. So we've got the Forum, Kroenke's (presumed) music/entertainment venue and a Clippers arena, all within a stone's throw of each other. The Kroenke venue, at 6K seats, might not conflict much with the bigger venues. But the Forum and the Clipper arena? Seems like direct competitors for non-sports events.

Maybe they should build an outdoor theatre. They aren't redundant enough.

What if the Forum were renovated and used for a new NHL team? Then the Forum and the new Clippers arena would each have a signature tenant. This would be similar to Minneapolis/St Paul's situation with Target Center and Xcel Center (St Paul).

Yeah, as if LA needs another NHL team. It's different than basketball because hockey isn't native to SoCal.

I mean, look at the pictures of the renovated Forum: https://la.curbed.com/2014/1/15/10154442...wood-forum

Does that look like a modern NBA (or NHL) arena, to anyone??

To convert that into one, would probably cost the same as building one from scratch.

Yeah, it is. It's actually a nice venue but it's missing a lot of the high end perks that more modern facilities have. It would certainly make sense for the Inglewood venue owner (will it be Ballmer or Inglewood?) to woo the Ducks. Not sure how long their lease is in Anaheim.

I'd guess Anaheim will try to make a pitch to lure the Clippers but as you point out, Honda Center is 25 years old. It's gonna take massive renovation, or an entirely new venue, to get Ballmer to even consider it.
