LOS ANGELES — When you walk the concourses at Staples Center
during a Los Angeles Kings
game, the diversity of the fan base is on display for all to see. To be sure, fans from all walks of life, and all levels of devotion, occupy Staples Center when the Kings are in town, including those who have been around since the first days of the franchise in 1967, to brand new ones who some derisively refer to as bandwagoners
