I've also been to Atlanta. It's obviously a different breed with its layout, but I thought it was interesting. Kinda cool that you can see CNN while you're there, I suppose.

I've been to Toronto and LA for drafts. Both seemed groovy, too. But you definitely got the sense in LA that the Kings weren't the first priority. All of the shops had more Lakers gear than anything. And confetti was still occasionally falling from the NBA championship, haha.
Disagree on the bolded part. I think the concourse is pretty terrible, food is pretty bad, and the seats aren't the most comfortable things in the world. But in terms of in your seat experience, it's absolutely 200% better than the BAC. The arena feels small, and that makes everything much louder and intense, which is great. Oh yeah, and they have a pretty beautiful jumbotron.
