Just to compare, using NBA:

1994:

Madison Square Garden

Brendan Byrne Arena

Boston Garden

The Spectrum

Gund Arena

Palace of Auburn Hills

Chicago Stadium

Market Square Arena

Bradley Center

The Omni

Charlotte Coliseum

Miami Arena

Orlando Arena

US Air Arena

MCNicholls Sports Arena

Target Center

Seattle Center Coliseum

Rose Garden

Reunion Arena

Delta Center

Oakland Coliseum

Great Western Forum

L.A. Memorial Sports Arena

America West Arena

ARCO Arena

The Summitt

Alamodome

I count 6 named for corporations (Great Western, ARCO, Delta, America West, US Air, Target). Out of the 27 teams at the time, that's 22%.

Compare to 20 years later, 2014:

Madison Square Garden

Barclay's Center

TD Garden

Wells Fargo Center

Air Canada Center

Quicken Loans Arena

Palace of Auburn Hills

United Center

Bankers Life Fieldhouse

BMO Harris Bradley Center

Philips Arena

Time Warner Cable Arena

American Airlines Arena

Amway Center

Verizon Center

Pepsi Center

Target Center

Chesapeake Energy Arena

Moda Center

Sleep Train Arena

EnergySolutions Arena

Oracle Arena

Staples Center x 2

US Airways Center

American Airlines Center

Toyota Center

AT & T Center

FedEx Forum

Smoothie King Center

Now, if my calculations serve me correct, my Pistons are the only ones who play at a non-corporate sponsored arena.

I only agree with this if they're giving away free smoothies when the Pelicans come away with a victory.

Seems plausible. ESPN article states that there will be Smoothie King vendors in the arena and giant inflatable smoothie cups outside the arena. That makes this years All-Star Weekend the best one ever!

You guys are funny. If this was the name of the Hornets arena in the 90's you would write stuff like "Man. The NBA is so corporate now. Every arena is named after a bank. Why can't it be like the 90's when it was fun like Smoothie King Arena."

You know it's true. Don't deny it.
