The Lakers and Clippers haven't come anywhere near Staples Center since last spring, thanks to the NBA lockout. But the Los Angeles Kings begin their home season tonight on the Staples ice. Arena announcer David Courtney handles both the Kings and the Clippers (as well as the Angels) and sounds happy to have a reason to finally come back Downtown. He tweets this afternoon: "My 34th Home Opener with the #LAKings tonight (23rd as announcer) & every one as exciting as the 1st! Can't wait to be a part of it!"
