Staying Home: Lakers Ink Staples Center Lease Through 2041
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Lakers will stay home at Staples Center through at least 2041 after signing a long-term lease extension. The 17-time NBA champion Lakers share Staples with the Los Angeles Clippers and the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings. The Lakers have won six titles during their 22 seasons at the arena, which opened in 1999. The Lakers christened the building with three championships in its first three seasons before adding two more banners in 2009 and 2010, followed by the 2020 banner from the Florida bubble.
