When Larry and Gail Miller broke ground on a new basketball arena in late May 1990, Gordon Hayward was an infant — and the rest of Utah’s starting five hadn’t even been born.
But even in an era in which quarter-century-old arenas are routinely shuttered and demolished in favor of newer, fancier digs, Jazz officials say their preference — as they weigh their options — is to stay put at EnergySolutions Arena.
“The bones of this building are really strong,” new Miller Sports and Entertainment President Steve Starks says. “We’ve had others come look at it and say it’s in great shape. It’s timeless in a lot of ways. … Hopefully this is an arena that’s world-class for the next 20-30 years.”
