Large crowds are nothing new to Staples Center. NBA Finals, the Democratic Convention, the Grammys, Bruce Springsteen. But what is set to occur this weekend at the downtown Los Angeles arena is wholly unprecedented.Stay away. STAY AWAY!!!
A combination of six playoff basketball and hockey games will be played over four days, capped by the finish of the Amgen Tour of California bicycle race, which will end at the intersection of Figueroa Street and Chick Hearn Court.
An estimated 250,000 people are expected to attend the games and race.
"I've called this the perfect storm, but I'm just hoping this doesn't become a tsunami effect," said Staples Center Senior Vice President and General Manager Lee Zeidman.
