After a brief hiatus, class is back in session. Let the #SocialStudies commence.
1.This is nearly unbelievable

2. Time Lapse-tastic
The Staples Center in Los Angeles is home for the Lakers (NBA), Clippers (NBA) and Kings (NHL) – and the spring of 2012 saw all three franchises in the playoffs. Between May 17-20, the Staples Center was host to six playoff contests.
Six gargantuan events, four days. Here’s hoping the facility folks are somewhere with their feet up after that stretch. I’m sure a few athletic directors out there feel this way during the spring season, too. This clip shows all the action, hyper-speed.

Trying for a trick shot or a similarly incredible feat?
Get some video, and let us show it off here on #SocialStudies.
