I have as well (Twice; for the Kings and Lakers) and the reason I ask, is because even though they are extremely nice and comfortable, I found that you lose some of the "being there" factor because of the enclosed scenario. I actually rather be in the middle of the crowd.
Did you feel the same?
The dessert cart is amazing.

Well, my overall attitude was "I'm just happy to have free tickets to this event". But, that being said, the suites at Staples are very enclosed and cutoff from the crowd, no doubt. I've been there for Laker games, Kings games, Clippers games, a U2 and a Bruce concert, etc, and never did you feel the true electricity of the crowd in those suites.

The suites at Dodger stadium, on the other hand, just out over the crowd and are more open, so that experience is a 180 from Staples.

And, yeah, the dessert cart is hard to beat.

Lakers were far and away the better team last night. Celts have to do something to shore up the rebounding.

And lets hope for a few less whistles on both sides from hear on in...what did they say, call it tight in the odd quarters and not so much in the evens, cause in the 1st and 3rd the whistles were just constant.

Lakers were definitely more dominant, especially on defense. Kobe had a great game, as usual.

Garnett needs to attack more. With all the talk about how Gasol was "soft" back in 2008, it applied to Garnett last night.

Still, I was hoping for one win out there, so bring on Game 2.

pao was absolutely terrific last night... really surprised me with his aggresiveness. i guess he was tired of being called soft. kobe was kobe, and there's really no surprise in what he does.

the celtics got out of wack in their half court offense and started trying to ISO pierce with post ups way too often. and KG needs to get to the basket more often and stop just shooting jumpers the entire game. when boston actually stayed committed to running their offense they were able to score... a bunch of easy layups on misdirection plays close to the basket.

i'd also like to add that i'm happy as a pig in shit this morning because i won a significant amount of money by betting the lakers hard after seeing that they put joey crawford on the game. tim donaghy, you are my hero


tight whistle? advantage lakers.
even whistle? even series.
loose whistle? advantage celtics.

if mccutchen or callahan is on game 2, bet the celtics hard. salvatore or bavetta? go lakers.

The amount of Douchebraggary in this post is what's hard to beat.

Good observation on the tightness affecting the teams' chances, but I've got to bring up Simmons again, who actually felt good that Crawford was on last night because apparently he tends to favor the road team. He also pointed this out throughout the game a handful of times in his running commentary.

I'm only just now getting to this comment, but the night of the last week of the NFL season, when the Cowboys blanked the Eagles and won the division, Kobe and Co. destroyed the Mavericks to the tune of 131-96*. What did he chalk this beatdown up to?

"Payback for what the Cowboys did to my Eagles," said Kobe Bryant, whose hometown Philadelphia football team lost 24-0 in Texas.
Just throwing that out there.

This is awesome:

Doc Rivers hides $2600 in the Staples Center ceiling - Ball Don't Lie - NBA - Yahoo! Sports


Doc is ok in my book.
