I'm partial to my school's own basketball arena, opened in 1999... Haas Pavilion, built on top of the old Harmon Gymnasium.

Home to greats such as Kevin Johnson, Jason Kidd, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Sean Lampley, and more...

Pac-10 arenas are all pretty nice... McKale in Arizona, the Pit in Oregon, Maples at Stanfurd... well I guess the LA arenas are kinda lame... I hate Pauley and U$C plays at the Sports Arena haha...

Game 5, 1984 Finals, 97 degrees in Boston Garden.

As I said, it was an unairconditioned dump. With a bad floor.

If a game hasnt' been played there, how do you know it is the greatest arena around. It could suck.

It's strange that the above pix aren't of Cameron Indoor Stadium.

they spent $105 million on it. Sure, it could suck, but very unlikely

I'm partial to the $30 million dollar Bud Walton Arena myself
