Heat Tickets Top NBA Initial Opening Week and Holiday Schedule
Last week, the NBA released its initial Opening Week and Holiday Schedule for the 2010-2011 NBA Season. Fans are clearly excited to see the new trio of James, Wade, and Bosch, now all playing for the Miami Heat.
When the Heat had their home opener against the New York Knicks last year, average ticket prices were $116. This year, with King James and company, Heat tickets for the home opener average $805. What a different a year makes. And the LeBron Effect doesn’t hurt either.
The reigning NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers are the hotlist, as the team looks to give coach Phil Jackson his twelfth NBA Championship.
