As home of four professional sports franchises—the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, and the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks—Staples Center gives a home-court advantage to local teams, with the Lakers capturing five NBA Championships and the Kings winning two Stanley Cup titles since 1999. The Sparks captured back-to-back WNBA Championships in their first two Staples Center campaigns and brought home their third WNBA Championship in June 2016.
