With the NBA approaching relevancy again as the opening game on October 30th draws near, it seems important to help you guys with any travel plans you may have.
Obviously there are plenty of people out there who don't live in a city where NBA basketball is played, and some of those people may be in between a few teams. That's where I come in.
I'm here to help you plan whatever basketball-related trip you may want to take over the next two-thirds of the year, based on the arenas of each NBA city.
There are obvious teams that have more historic, fun or state-of-the-art arenas than others, but in the middle there are a bunch of less obvious decisions to make that can't possibly be figured out without some kind of a guide.
So, I've taken each NBA arena and found those worth visiting and those not worth visiting in a helpful little guide for all. Rankings are based on a multitude of factors, including team history, fan-friendly arenas, location, arena amenities and anything else that might be basketball arena related.
