NBA prices seem affordable
With season-ticket prices ranging as low as $10 per game, it’s easy to say that Oklahoma City’s NBA franchise is making this season affordable for most every fan. With the really good seats going as high as $150 and $250, it’s also easy to say that the NBA remains a rich-fan’s league.
The truth is, it’s both. OKC, like much of the NBA, is soaking the big spenders. The franchise doesn’t even reveal the price of the best seats, the NIcholson seats at courtside where fans literally can — and occasionally do — reach out and touch the players. It’s one of those if-you-have-to-ask-you-can’t-afford-it prices. Best guess from the Hornets’ days: $999 a game.
But move off the court some, and the prices don’t seem kooky high. Almost all of the upper deck is priced at $10, $15 or $20, which isn’t bad at all. Check out the prices at movie theaters; I promise the NBA offers better entertainment.
The pricing seems like a sure winner in these heady times of NBA euphoria. The Not-the-Sonics will play before a packed house every night. How long that will last will be determined by several factors. Team success, the organization’s ability to duplicate or even surpass the Hornets’ entertainment quality and the economy.
But that will be then. This is now, and now, the ticket prices seem solid.
