Staples Center

Staples Center Main Concourse End


Sitting Here for a Basketball Game

Like the adjacent corner sections, sitting in the end of the main concourse is a better option for hockey than it is for basketball.

The biggest issue with sitting in an end section is that the view from most of these seats is obstructed by the basket. When you're seated in these 100 level sections, it can be difficult to see if a basket is made on the hoop near you and can be near-impossible to see the action on the other end of the court.

In addition to obstructions created by the basket, fans seated closest to the floor will be seated on folding chairs in temporary seats placed only for basketball and concerts. The rows at the front (A-M) of these sections do not rise very much, making it difficult to see over fans in front of you. Sitting in rows F-M should be avoided.

Despite the shortcomings of many of the seats in these sections, this is still one of the cheapest ways to sit on the lower level for a Lakers or Clippers game. If this is important to you, choose a seat near the top of these sections. By sitting in a higher row, you'll have a better sightline for seeing the court and you'll also be just a few steps away from the section tunnel and the concourse. Additionally, these sections split in the top ten rows so there are fewer seats per row (easier to get in and out) in rows 11-20. Lastly, the ticket price in the higher rows is less expensive than in the lower rows so if you are disappointed, you'll be at least a little heavier in the wallet.  -

Ratings, Reviews & Recommendations

  • "Awesome seat!"

    (Section 107) - -

    You're close enough to hear the players talk, especially during free throws, great pictures as well..

  • "These were amazing seats. I'll never sit anywhere else. Blows the PR sections away any day!"

    (Section 116) - -

    I have sat in the PR sections many times. I had the opportunity to sit on the baseline/floor seats for the first time. Wow! These were about 9 rows from the court and I could see everything. I also had tons of movie stars surrounding me. Wish I could sit here everytime.
