Yes, it seems like the interest was much more on MSG's part than the Lakers.Staples Center is at a perfect location, accessible to the entire region via rail and freeways, surrounded by bars and restaurants and basically walking distance for 75,000 residents and 500,000 employees. The idea was just floated but at the end of the day, they arent going anywhere. They are currently negotiating an extension to stay at Staples from what i recall reading
But with all the new stuff in Inglewood, Exposition Park and the proposed new convention center downtown Staples no longer catches the eye. It will be interesting to see if there is more in process here.
