staples center scoreboard

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.
