New York City is home to both the newest and the second-oldest NBA arena. Madison Square Garden, now in its fourth incarnation, was completed in 1968, while Barclays Center was finished this past summer.
In between their construction, 27 other arenas have been built and witnessed some of the NBA's most dramatic moments. Obviously, the older an arena is, the more historic cache it's likely to have. But as we go through the rankings, you'll notice age isn't the final arbitrator.
Tense moments, exciting showdowns and euphoric events matter too.
So, without further ado, I give to you the NBA's 29 arenas ranked by history!
