New Live 4HD Scoreboard unveiled at Staples Center

As a Lakers fan that travels often and catches sporting events in different cities, I’ve always had one knock on Staples Center. In comparison to other major sporting venues; Staples is easily one of, if not the, most sophisticated — but it’s seriously lacked a great scoreboard. Well, the fine folks over at A.E.G. must have heard me raving about HD scoreboard at the Boston Garden, because they’ve just one upped the competition.

The new Panasonic 4HD scoreboard was unveiled today at Staples Center. Credit to @cazeb for the picture. This thing looks like a beast.

Sure, it might pale in comparison to the Jerry-Tron over in Dallas, but our intro videos are going to look great — scratch that, we have giant curtains drop from the ceiling for those.

      Good eye.

      • Kwame sucks

  • Erwin Ignacio

    its very cool

  • kwame4mvp

    Am I the only one that thinks the giant curtain is retarded?

    • ignard

      ARE YOU SERIOUS?!
      Everytime that thing drops I get goosebumps. I hope that doesn’t change.
      Oh………yeah I think you’re the only one.

  • KUSH

    Some are born great, some acheive greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them

  • Robert.

    Great! Now we can see close ups of Jack’s pores (in HD). … or the Laker girls’ shiny smiles.
    .
    It’s a fitting aspect of a media extravaganza in the Media Capital of the World !
    .
    Next up — Lakers in 3D – glasses are $18.00 extra.

    so now we can watch kobe miss 20 shots a game in HI-DEF…….THATS SWEET.

    • 242LakerFan

      Well, you can’t. At least, not till your sentence is up.

    • Robert.

      Wow! Hasn’t this theme played out yet? It’s been 3 long months. I think you have the record for ‘most hurt by Lakers Championship’. You passed Bill Simmons (maybe you ‘are’ Bill Simmons).
      .
      I recommend walking your dog (that’s what BS does, after his Celtics lose – AND – when the Lakers win).

    • ignard

      and watch Kobe win his 6th ring also.

  • ShaqAttaq

    Who cares? Staples blows!! Nothing can compare to the Gahden!!!

    • candice fitinyamouth

      get off of here go to the gahden and watch urr team lose

  • LaKeR bOy

    THAT SHiT iS SiCK!!!

  • http://socalmama.com DaLakers

    Really nice addition to an already venue! Just to bad I can’t afford to go to games and enjoy it :(

    • ignard

      I feel you, lucky for me my bestfriend is a season ticket holder or i’d probably only catch 4 or 5 games a season.

      • http://socalmama.com DaLakers

        Awesome! I need new freinds ;) lol!!!

  • candice fitinyamouth

    SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET ! ! !

    just putin lipstick on a pig, nothing personal 666fakerfan…kind of like your mom?

    • 242LakerFan

      Yes, I did kind of like my Mom, may she rest in peace. And I take nothing you say personally. Hell, I don’t even take anything you say seriously!

    • lakers2000

      Hey, Laffs Atu! Lay off the mom jokes. I got off yours! You must be that butt hurt bitch in Colorado.

    • cjm

      why don’t you tell us something about yourself. clearly you have a great need for attention, and come here to get it. that can’t be very satisfying — is there some reason you don’t have a normal life?

      this indirect approach is inefficient to say the least, just say what’s really on your mind like a man. i know that there is like a 99.999% chance you don’t even shave yet, but it’s never too early to start practicing being an adult.

      the world is full of knuckleheads, they’re a dime a dozen, why don’t you try being something a little more valuable than that?

  • gdfg

    About darn time, the scoreboard is definite was outdated, any improvement will be great.

  • D-Fish on the wing

    I get to see this when I’m standing on the Staples Center floor for the Muse concert!

  • http://57.amklac laffs atu

    so along with bryants bloated over-paid contract, the fans are also paying for this.?staples really will be the milloinares club.

    • 242LakerFan

      Kobe’s contract is overpaid? How much does it make? And how much should a contract realistically earn these days? How much do you think Kobe’s contract should be making? I mean all it actually does is sit around being a contract all day. Not exactly skilled labour.

      • bostonSUCKS88

        haha its funny watching laffs atu and 242lakerfan go at it

        • http://57.amklac/ laffs atu

  • daboss1848

    i actually find it sad . . . some ppl’s only purpose of coming to the site and posting is to rile up others. By responding, we give them credence. Push the ignore button and move on.

    • 242LakerFan

      You’re probably right. It’s hard coming up with new material when I’m getting the same stale set up lines over and over and over: 6-24 – my pinky hurts – Phil’s book – Kobe doesn’t play defense – Kobe’s overpaid – Kobe’s not a leader…
      Okay, it’s time to ignore this fool and move on. Training Camp starts tomorrow, so it’s the official end of summer. Playtime over.

  • cjm

    did the lakers buy that new scoreboard off steven spielberg? it looks an awful lot like the mother ship from Close Encounters.

  • gansta

    242lakerfan you can suck my big balls u fat lazy fuck. get the fuck off this site moron . you look like my ass hole with that fur on your face motherfuck.

    • 242LakerFan

      • 242LakerFan

        LOL Gangsta says he has a big fat hairy asshole with glasses. What will they think of next? LMBFHAO!!!

      • 242LakerFan

        Hey Gansta, had enough of my face yet? Or is this a mirror you’re holding behind you? LMBFHAO!!!

        • 242LakerFan

          Hey Gansta, How my face taste? LMBFHAO!!!

    • 242LakerFan

      I once saw an armless midget with someone standing on his head, but it turned out it was just Gansta standing naked! LMBFHAO!!!!

      • 242LakerFan

        Gansta was once first runner up in a beauty contest. His asshole won! (It was fixed, though; his boyfriend was the judge) LMBFHAO!!!!!

    • 242LakerFan

      Gansta’s balls are so big…(How big are they?…they’re so big his boyfriend has to use a straw!

      • 242LakerFan

        Gansta’s balls are so big…(How big are they?)…they’re so big, he went to a teabagging party and teabagged the whole party!

    • 242LakerFan

      Gansta’s balls are so big…(How big are they?)…they’re so big, Monica Blake wore out two AXE Detailers cleaning them!

      • NBAmazkingKB24

        • 242LakerFan

          If you’re gonna call someone stupid, at least learn how to spell and punctuate while you do it. It lends that little bit of credibility to your argument.
          And I’m on east coast time, so it was 8:30.
          As for your balls and ass, you brought them up; I was just feeding your fantasy.
          Also, make up your mind; am I a faggot (spelled with an “o”, btw) or a homophobe (“ph”)?
          Last, but certainly not least, leave the racist remarks alone, okay? I mean if you have to resort to that you might as well just hang a sign around your neck that says Hey, Look, I’m a Douchebag! and walk around Hollywood in your underwear. At least then you’d get some respect for being honest.

          • TOUCHING_MYSELF

            Damn 242… you are at rare form my man! Funniest sh!t I’ve read in a long as time. Hahaha! I love it! I thought that you were above all this because I was the one going off on RIO RONDO and going at him hard! All the while, you were just responding back to him in a calm and respectable manner.

            It’s good to see that there’s this mean streak in you though! Shows the peeps that you know your sh!t and you’ll throw down when the time is right! Good sh!t! Looking forward to more of these retorts as the season wears on! Hahaha!

    • cjm

      once you get a taste of prison love, you never go back, eh? i know you are obsessed with 242 but i am pretty sure your love is unrequitted. just put on your favorite dress, and head out to the nearest prison on visiting day — you won’t come home “empty handed”.

  • KUSH

    She tells enough white lies to ice a wedding cake..

  • http://57.amklac laffs atu

    with teachers, cops and firemen getting laid-off on a weekly basis……i`m sure they`re all happy to see a zillion dollar scoreboard……….yeah!

    • cjm

      maybe if they weren’t raping the state dry, they wouldn’t be getting laid off.

    • kb24blkMamba
