Reminder: there’s no sleeping in tomorrow for Lakers fans hoping to snatch up a few of the 1,000 or so tickets available for next season’s games during the Ticketmaster general on-sale, beginning at 10 a.m. Savvier ticket buyers already had their first go-around at trying to nab tickets to see Miami on Christmas Day (good luck on that one…) this afternoon as part of the Lakers e-newsletter pre-sale.
There’s been a few changes to the ticket process this year (unfortunately, eliminating that annoying word puzzle on Ticketmaster isn’t one of them)—some games cheaper, some games more expensive.
What are your must-see in-person games? Maybe a little closure to Game 7 on ring night vs. Houston, Oct. 26? How about L.A.’s first go-around with the new-look Bulls on Nov. 23? If you aren’t secretly hoping Santa brings you a little forum blue and gold-wrapped package containing a pair of prized tickets to see LeBron, Wade and Bosh on Christmas Day, you aren’t breathing. Or, maybe you fancy a rematch with Boston—no doubt in full Grinch mode—when they head back to the site of their epic Finals loss on Jan. 30?
Logged in the first minute the tickets went on sale today. Boston, Miami, Orlando – no tickets available. I did snap up some OKC tickets,
Had one ticket for the Miami game today on ticketmaster. Premier section. Cost $615.
I passed. I would spend that for the NBA finals but I am not spending that kind of money for a regular season game. Come on Lakers, $615 for a regular season game. These seats cost $300 at most 2 years ago.
I would have scooped it up. Even though it’s not worth $615 to you, it’s probably worth at least $1000 (and I’m sure that’s pretty conservative) to someone else.
Ticketmaster keeps trying to sell me a pair of tix to the Boston game Jan 30th for $600 each.
Not worth it to me, but it should be a great game. On the other hand, the game vs Heat being on XMas will probably be pretty bad – I’d rather watch it for free on the telly.
