didn't know if i should post it here or not.
Heading to LA from Australia in Feb, Always been a dream of mine to watch the lakers play, i got tickets to lakers vs Suns on feb 13th, row b behind the lakers bench. Can't wait!!
when do the gates open? as I'd like to get there early and hopefully watch them at shootaround and maybe get a photo with some players, does anyone know if they allow that? or if they do it at all?
also do they sell the those yellow foam fingers at staples center ? :) i've always wanted one of them.
cheers anymore tips would be helpful.
Not sure about taking photos with them during shoot around before game time as not all of them are on the floor except during warm ups (right before tip off), but I do know they sell the foam fingers at the shop inside Staples Center for $10 I believe.
While you're there, check out the Nike Vault. The entrance is right next to the statues of Kareem and Magic. It's pretty much the Nike shrine of Kobe and you can buy some cool (and exclusive to the store only, not online anywhere) Nike/Kobe gear.
Enjoy your time at the game!
