Anyone have a staple remover??
The iconic Staples Center signage is officially coming down on Monday ... with workers slowly removing the red letters off of the building to make way for Crypto.com Arena.
As we previously reported, the cryptocurrency company bought the naming rights to the venue last month ... which came with a whopping $700 MILLION price tag.
While the name change won't officially happen until Christmas Day, AEG wasted no time kick-starting the rebrand ... which will undoubtedly have some fans upset.
Of course, Staples Center was often referred to as "The House That Kobe Built," as a nod to the late Lakers legend, who played at the venue for the majority of his Hall of Fame career.
No matter what people officially call the arena, Vanessa Bryant made it clear all the history that Kobe made inside will always live on.
The new deal will see Crypto.com's logos on the building for at least the next 20 years ... so maybe people will get used to it by 2042.
