Over and Back: Bye bye Bradley Center & NBA arena changes

On today’s episode of the Over and Back Classic NBA Podcast, Jason and Rich bid adieu to Milwaukee’s Bradley Center and discuss historical and upcoming NBA arena changes.

The end of the Bradley Center is significant as it is currently one of the NBA’s oldest active NBA arenas only behind the New York Knicks’ Madison Square Garden and the Golden State Warriors’ Oracle Arena. We discuss some of our memories of the Bradley Center, its history as an NBA arena and what it means for it to be replaced.

We then look at some new arenas coming in the near future including the aforementioned Oracle Arena being replaced by the brand-new Chase Center, the Warriors’ move back to San Francisco and the historical significance of that and much more. We also touch on the proposed Inglewood Basketball & Entertainment Center for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Lastly, we dig into recent arena changes including the Detroit Pistons moving from The Palace of Auburn Hills to the new Little Caesars Arena, Sacramento Kings leaving Arco Arena for the state-of-the-art Golden1 Center and Orlando moving from one Amway to another in 2010. Included is an examination of historical trends for new arenas, what years saw the most arena changes and whether or not we’re in a high time or low time for arena movement.
