Lower bowl tickets are only $115?
Normally he gets tickets in the 300 section (Read:Crows nest), so we just buy our own unless it is last minute situation where weren't plan on going. Even he didn't know the tickets were that good until we got the arena and he had already promised them to a couple of his buddies when once we declined them.
There are three sections at Staples Center....one on the upper section where each ticket could run about 10-15 regular season...25 and up for playoffs...depending on the round. The lower bowl consists of the 100 section 100 and section 200. Tickets in the section 100 start about 125 each and can soar to over $5000 each.....you can get some in the section 200 from about $45 to 100. I get the tickets from either StubHub or the Clippers resale departments via Ticketmaster. The latter fees are cheaper. The tickets I got on Thursday in section 217 row 8 were $51 each in the"end zone", and $6.50 fee for each ticket. The face value was $75 each. I am not going to Tuesday's game even if my son offers free tickets again. They way Clippers are playing, that might be the last playoff game this season.
Chicago is a rip off. My feel for ticket prices has been totally skewed. It sucks for me, because I don't like the Bulls enough to spend what they are asking, so I only go when someone gives me tickets. I would have thought LA would be just as bad. I'm perpetually amazed at how much people are willing to spend to attend live sporting events. If you take a couple kids to a regular season game here and get decent seats, you're easily spending $200-$300. The alternative to that is so good (i.e. sitting on your couch and watching with no parking, travel time, or $9 beers). I can understand spending the money to take clients, but for personal consumption, it's pretty taxing.
On average the tickets for the Lakers are probably 30-40% higher than the Clippers despite not winning more than 30 games the past 4 years. There are Stubhub sellers who will find buyers rich suckers with money in the LA area willing to pay...because they can afford it $175 per ticket that person in front of them paid $50 for? The tickets in the section 100 and could run as $5000 per ticket and someone will buy it. We go to an average 4-5 games a year. One might be a freebie from my son (a Clipper employee) and the other 3-4 that I pay for are normally probably in the 200 section where I never go above $45 per ticket for a regular season game and never above $60 for a playoff game. Most of the time me and Mrs Jones Dre go, but we have taken and paid for her mother and one of my cousins a starving UCLA med student should be able to pay it back when she gets her doctorate 4 years from now... Sometimes parking is free, but when not,food, beverages and parking could add an additional $50 to the event. Plus it's 40 miles each way to the Staples Center from my home, so throw in gas expense and you know why it is a once a month event .....and never for Laker game$
