LOS ANGELES -- The NBA draft could be moving to Los Angeles next year and possibly the next three years as Madison Square Garden undergoes summer construction which won't be complete until 2014.

Tim Leiweke, President and CEO of AEG, said Monday he is currently talking to the league about holding the NBA draft at Staples Center or the Nokia Theatre next year and is hoping it will be a partnership that will last longer than that.

"We are talking to them and they are a high priority for us," said Leiweke. "They're comfortable here; they helped design our campus so it would be a perfect fit."

I hope this happens, I'm tired of New York being the center of attention.

Pretty much. The Knicks suck, but the New Yorkers credit, they appreciate talent when they see it. I don't know if L.A. fans will be as welcoming as New York fans and clapping for other teams and their lottery picks. I couldn't care less for it being in L.A., to be honest.
