KeyArena: It’s still lacking 21st century comforts

While it is admirable that KeyArena has been able to turn a profit after the departure of the Sonics, the fact remains it is a 50-year-old arena with small, crowded concourses and little in the way of food or drink selection [“KeyArena turns a bigger profit than it ever did with the Sonics,” Local News, Oct. 5].

I’m not talking luxury suites here, just fan comforts that are expected in the 21st century and that we get in other sports venues in the city. The article also stated that the Inglewood Forum had been demolished. Google “Inglewood Forum Renovation” and take a look at how a facility, nearly as old as The Key, can be brought into the 21st century.
