Staples Center

1999 - Staples Center Opens

The Kings also made an even bigger move in 1999, along with the Los Angeles Lakers, as they left the Great Western Forum and moved to Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles which was built by Anschutz and Roski. Staples Center was a state-of-the-art arena, complete with luxury suites and all the modern amenities that fans and athletes would want in a brand-new facility.
