LeBron James held his first official press conference yesterday as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers where he talked about several things including the biggest winners in free agency this summer. Several teams had major changes that improved their roster for the upcoming season, however, LeBron believes the biggest winner this summer is the Staples Center.
LeBron thinks basketball fans in L.A. are the biggest winners because they will have the opportunity to see two great teams competing for a championship in the same arena. On top of that LeBron recognized other great artists and athletes that will perform in the Staples Center on a nightly basis which in his mind is a big opportunity for everyone who lives in the Los Angeles area.
“Everyone talks about the big winners of the summertime. The Nets, Clippers, Lakers but it’s actually the Staples Center. Staples Center is the biggest winner of the summer. If you’re a fan of the game of basketball, you’ll have the Clippers one night and then the Lakers another night. You will have a great show, great performers and artists and everybody who comes through the Staples Center the entire year. Staples Center is a place to be. The city of Los Angeles will be very proud of what is going on not just with the Lakers or the Clippers but also with the Rams, the Dodgers. It’s a great time to be a sports fan in the city.”
