Norfolk, Va. — First came Major League Baseball in 2002,
followed by the NFL in 2008. Now, for the first time, thanks to the explosion
in vegetarian options at sports venues across the continent, PETA has surveyed
the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly NBA Arenas, and the results are in.
Taking first place is the STAPLES Center, home of the
Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers. Specialties include the protein-packed veggie
burger, vegetable sushi, and the vegan sloppy Joe, drenched in barbecue sauce.
Fans also enjoy the grilled veggie sandwich, PB&J, hummus with pita, and
edamame. Coming in a close second is the Toronto Raptors' Air Canada Centre,
where guests can feast on vegetarian burritos; veggie subs; veggie dogs with
lettuce, tomatoes, and scallions; and Bollywood veggie dogs served with potato,
tamarind ketchup, papadum, and mint chutney. Third place goes to the Wells
Fargo Center, home of the Philadelphia 76ers. Burger lovers can choose from
black-bean burgers or the brown rice–based Malibu Burger, while hot-dog lovers
can treat themselves to hearty, protein-packed veggie dogs. In fourth place,
the BMO Harris Bradley Center, where the Milwaukee Bucks play, offers
vegan sloppy Joes and dairy-free dark-chocolate protein bars, and fans in the
premium area can indulge in a grilled flatbread sandwich with marinated tofu
and spicy vegan mayo. Placing fifth is the Golden State Warriors' Oracle
Arena, which offers Vietnamese ginger garlic tofu sandwiches, tofu lettuce
wraps, and veggie burgers. (Note that the foods listed are only a small sample
of what these arenas offer.)
Rounding out the top 10 are the Rose Garden (Portland
Trail Blazers), the United Center (Chicago Bulls), the AT&T Center
(San Antonio Spurs), Bankers Life Fieldhouse (Indiana Pacers), and The
Palace of Auburn Hills (Detroit Pistons).
"Feasting on top-notch vegetarian food at an NBA game
these days is a slam dunk," says PETA Associate Director of Campaigns
Lindsay Rajt. "By avoiding the artery-clogging cholesterol and saturated
fats in meat, fans can make sure that they're around to cheer on the home team
for many years to come."

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
