TORONTO -- While Toronto's Maple Leafs and Raptors gear up for next season, Scotiabank Arena is getting a multimillion-dollar face-lift.

Something is going to be more expensive, either food price or ticket price or may be both. Remember I went to ACC watch the first NBA game 2007, its $30, food is cheaper, it's hard to imaging how kid can afford to watch the game nowadays

hmm theater instead of area lighting, that is to say, a dark arena with a brightly lit court?

I was thinking about this the other day. Teams nowadays change arenas quickly. Same with stadiums. But in Toronto and New York, and other big cities, they really cannot as there is nowhere else to build that makes sense. They will have to do continuous renovations and facelifts forever.

I think people should only be allowed to order food on the app in the lower bowl. no more wandering off at half time.
