With all the talk about the Kings relocating and needing a new arena, I haven’t heard just how old ARCO Arena / Power Balance Pavilion is.

It’s the second oldest arena in the NBA, but it’s also the smallest. It would be nice to have something new, but we can’t even sell out Arco.
Interesting.. and I agree.
So it’s only 24 years old. Is that considered “old” for NBA arenas? Now they want to build a new arena in downtown Sacramento. How many years until that new area will be considered “old”? Where will the next arena go, another 24 years from now?
This isn’t current, but the best I could come up with… It looks like the average year built (see link below) is around 1993, which would be 19 years old, but it’s thrown off by two built in the 60s. Take those out and the average year is 1995, or 17 years old.
