The best seats at the Staples Center are getting even better for LA Clippers fans who are ready to open in their wallets. The team has broken up its long scorers table, which has created eight new seats, called “Star Courtside” seats on the floor on the side of the players benches. “It’s extremely rare to have space like this open in any arena” Clippers president Gillian Zucker said. “What we did here was create new beachfront property.” The new seats won’t come cheap. The Clippers aren’t publicly disclosing the price, but a league source says they’re asking for $175,000 a seat. The price includes access to the team’s all-inclusive clubs, in-seat waiter service and valet parking with access to a VIP entrance.

We haven’t played a game yet, but right now I’m fine. … Often times, coaches and fans and everybody are in a real rush to get extra players and fill that 15th roster spot. I mean, you can’t believe how many phone calls I’ve had about that 15th roster spot.”
