Thread: ever been to another teams arena?

  1. #1

    Default ever been to another teams arena?

    doesnt have to be against the pacers but has anyone ever been to another teams arena?

    if so who?

    ive been to....

    bulls - united center
    bucks - bradley center
    cavaliers - quicken loans arena
    spurs - at&t center
    grizzlies - fedex forum
    hawks - philips arena

    i had to go to most of those cities for business meetings and strangly enough we had a meeting in chicago once and the pacers were in town

    its no question why conseco fieldhouse is a top arena in america

    we should be proud to play in it and we need to represent it better so more people would come

    I have a buddy who lives in Fort Wayne that says the United Center is nothing to write home about.

    I love Conseco. It's now 11 years old, and it still looks like it did on November 1999. If anything, it looks better!

    Ford Center in OKC last year with Roaming Gnome and his wife.

    We lost, but I took the Josh-Mc-Rob-erts chant with me.

    Madison Square Garden
    Izod Center (Old Nets home)
    Wachovia Center
    Verizon Center
    Time Warner Cable Arena
    And of course Conseco Fieldhouse

    All against the Pacers and like Duke, I took the Josh-Mc-Rob-erts chant with me to Charlotte this season.

    The home fans can't stand me. Especially when I lived in NY and went to the Garden to see the Pacers wearing my Reggie jersey.

    The Fieldhouse is hands down the nicest arena I've ever been to and probably the nicest in the NBA and you're right that we need to be a better team and get more people to the games.

    I've been to the United Center and the Palace of Auburn Hills.

    Guess which one I didn't wear Pacers gear in.

    Verizon Center in DC for the past two seasons. Happened to sit right next to PD members both times! It was cool to be in another arena, but didn't come close to the Fieldhouse.

    The Wiz home fans loved me for unknown reason.

    Gund arena - yes that is what it was called back then
    Bradley Center
    Chicago Stadium
    Palace of Auburn Hills

    I guess that is it.

    Of those four I thought the Palace at Auburn Hills was by far the best

    I have been to Quicken Loans Arena, The Palace and Conseco Field House....The palace was dark and it smelled bad and The Q's hallways are too narrow to get around.

    Only been to one, and that was a few years ago when the Pacers played in Orlando. I just happened to be there on vacation at the right time, and even though we lost, it was a fun experience.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    Other than Conseco and Market Square, I've seen Pacers games at the Time Warner Cable Center and Amway Arena (and I've seen two Magic games at the new Amway Arena this year).

    I'm right there with ya man, whenever the Pacers come to Charlotte every Bobcats fan hates me haha.

    I've seen the Pacers play in 5 different arenas.

    **2 Games at Conseco... (Which consisted of me driving ~15+ hours to get there from Wisconsin)
    - LeBron's first game vs. Pacers as a rookie (he missed a tip in at buzzer with chance to win)
    - A playoff game vs the Heat which the Pacers won in 2004

    **Multiple games at Minnesota (At one of my first ever live Pacer games my Dad won me a ball signed by the entire Pacers team in a silent auction held at half time... My most prized possession to this day!)

    **Multiple games at Milwaukee

    **1 game in Dallas (just happened to be driving cross country and was in Texas as Pacers were on a road trip. REALLY lucky! They lost though...)

    **Multiple games at LA vs. the Lakers (Including Reggie's final L.A. game, after which he high-fived me going into the tunnel. I was also interviewed for a news piece on Reggie by a local newspaper that day due to my Reggie attire... Unfortunately I missed the WIN this year...)

    Out of these, Conseco is by a WIDE margin the nicest. I am biased of course, but in all seriousness, it's the best.

    The Palace a bunch of times times.
    saw Green day play a concert at the Magics arena, if that counts. Conseco kills either of those.

    The Rose Garden in Portland is my favorite. I went to a pre-season game this year and the attendance was 20,000.

    I saw Celtics/Pistons at the Fleet Center (Antoine Walker/Paul Pierce...maybe JOB? era) with a friend from the Boston area. What a bland environment.

    I've been to five.

    Atlanta
    Chicago (old and new)
    New Orleans-Thanks to Harrahs
    Oklahoma City
    Conseco-Market Square-Fairgrounds

    Conseco is the best.

    I would rather be the hammer than the nail

    I've been to:

    Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City
    Rose Garden in Portland
    Key Arena in Seattle
    Ford Center in OKC w/ Duke
    United Ctr w/ Hicks
    Palace of Auburn Hills w/ Hicks

    In March I plan to add Dallas' American Airlines Center & Houston's Toyota Center to the list as my wife and I plan on taking a Pacers road trip thru OKC, Dallas & Houston. We may be looking for someone interested in going w/ us if they can get the week off work.

    I've just been to MSG but Conseco is very high on my priority list and will definitely be done medium-dated.

    I live in Atlanta, and went to a couple of Hawks games. Philips Arena is a sad sad place.

    I have sat about 9 rows back behind the basket, so I at least had a good view of the game.
    With the #3 pick in the 2015 draft, your Indiana Pacers!

    How long ago was this concert? I believe the Magic opened a new arena this year, and from what I've heard it's quite amazing.

    Can't say that with any certainty however, haven't been there myself.
