Sleep Train Arena will be undergoing some renovations before the NBA season opens:
The changes â€“ expected to be ready opening night, Oct. 30 â€“ include two new VIP lounges â€“ one for the teamâ€™s three-dozen-member ownership group â€“ and one expanded lounge. The visitors locker room, a long-reviled dungeon, will be doubled in size.
Not to pick on former staffer Runnergirl but here is a discussion from 2006 on this site about renovations including the very ones that are being planned. RG’s points were well-made, and I only include it here because it is relevant, not to prove anything. Though I do think the prevailing wisdom of the time was that these renovations were impossible.
