I'm sure many of us have been to NBA arenas here. What was your favorite one? Any reason why? Share your NBA experiences here.

Me, I have been to Madison Square Garden most recently and one or two others before. MSG is the legend of sports arenas.

I have never been to a basketball arena.

Well at least to see a basketball game, I went to the old Boston Garden to see Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus when I was younger.

I like the new arena in Indianapolis (Conseco Fieldhouse). There is not a bad seat in the house and there are so many consession stand with different types of foods that there is hardly a line over 2 people deep. And the suites are great as well!

Hey, that reminds me, I've also been to Indian's old Market Square Arena, which is now gone.

I have also been to the old MSA, but sadly, not for a basketball game. You would think since I live so close that I would go sometime. I would really like to see the new Conseco Fieldhouse...oh well.

The newest arenas in North America, the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, the Staples Centre in La-La-Land, and the Pepsi Centre in Denver are excellent for hockey, so I imagine they would be for basketball also.

Yes, Conseco is also great for hockey.

Old MSA sure was a nice place but it really was out of date. Oh well, sad to see it go.

Default MSG ..

The only arena I've seen sporting events in (NBA / NHL) are the Spectrum and First Union Center in Philadelphia. So I can't really give an opinion on that.

On the other hand, I have been inside MSG to see a musical (Christmas Carol). Even though I was mostly downstairs underneath the courts, I must say that MSG is the heaven of all sports arenas in the country. The place is absolutely amazing!

Only been to the old Boston Garden and the FleetCenter.

No place, not even MSG, will ever be better than being in the Garden.

The FleetCenter is a nice facility, but is tough to make noisy during games, so it sounds empty.

I like Reunion in Dallas. Since there are no luxury suites, the upper deck is still pretty close to the floor, making the cheaper seats still pretty good seats.

But the opportunity to see a game at Reunion is ending very soon. I hope I like the American Airlines Center as much.

I suspect that the SBC Center in San Antonio will be nice, as well. The word is that they're modeling it on Conseco Fieldhouse. I guarantee it will be better than the Alamodome, regardless.
