    NBA ticket sales in the toilet

    As stated in the article there are tickets being sold online for as cheap as 10 cents. Atlanta, Orlando, Memphis, Charlotte, New Orleans, Philly etc. can't give them away....

    That's because those teams either suck or have fair weather fans like Philly, Memphis, New Orleans and Atlanta.

    The NBA will always make their money in tickets through Lakers, Clippers, Heat, Celtics, Knicks, Nets, etc.

    Ummm, outside of Knicks Fans (who have a giant market in NY), do you think any of these teams would sell out without having star players/good teams?

    The Heat, Clippers, and Celtics just started selling out games when they got good. The Nets are new to the BK market so you can't judge them yet and the Lakers have been relevant since the 80s so their never was a reason not to go to games.

    If your team has talent, people will go the games. If not, they won't. Few markets go against this logic and the ones you named aren't good examples. Not a very thoughtful analysis of the NBA market.

    It's true.

    Brooklyn will sell tickets for the next 2 or 3 years.

    Past that they will have to win but they will certainly do much better in Brooklyn than they did in New Jersey.

    That's because the nba has lost its credibility. From the creation of super teams, to b.s. refereeing the league has gone into the toilet.

    That's one of the main problems imo.

    Apart from the big teams, it gets tedious. I guess you can say that for most sports tbh but teams like Kings, Bobcats will only attract die hard fans.

    My friends and I last year bought C's tickets against the Pacers in the very last row of nosebleed. $45 each was the cheapest.

    The Clippers and the Nets fan bases have been two of the most pathetic fan bases throughout nba history. Granted, the Clippers fans never had much to cheer for but the Nets couldn't sell out nba finals games in the early 00's
