43 bucks lmao


The Charlotte Bobcats’ crack marketing staff is selling some season tickets for next season, for which pricing will be based on the team’s NBA Draft lottery position. If the Bobcats earn the top overall pick, it will be super-cheap to watch them in person. Per the Charlotte Observer: “The team started advertising a promotion Wednesday where the price for an upper-deck seat will equal the draft pick the team wins in the lottery later this month. Should the NBA-worst Bobcats get the top pick, the season ticket would be $1 per game, or $43 for the season. It’s meant to drum up interest in the potentially lucrative draft position and ease the traditional May ticket sales lull. The Bobcats are guaranteed one of the top four picks after their dismal season, with a 25 percent chance of winning the right to draft consensus No. 1 Anthony Davis. Even if the team falls to No. 4, the seats are $4 per game, or $172 for the season. About 500 seats are eligible for the ‘Pay the Pick’ promotion, which runs through the draft lottery on May 30. Each person can buy up to four seats

$43 for season tickets if they get the #1 pick? Great promotion, I'd buy it.

Note: shouldn't it be $41? (82 games / half the games are played at home)

Cool promotion.

You can spend that much in parking and a beer alone.

thats a great deal considering you would see teams like miami, LA, Bos, NYK, and OKC for just a $1

Try Boston, you would be lucky to find a parking spot for less than 43 bucks.

Now that's a good deal. If they get the first pick, who wouldn't want to see Anthony Davis play for $1 a game? I wonder what the courtside season tickets are going for. I wonder if the ticket package includes a picture with Jordan lol!

WOW!!! Those are some cheap seats. I bet they sell out quick. Only 500 seats are effected, and they are nose-bleeds, so they are seats that they likely wouldnt have sold any tickets for anyways.

Good marketing idea... now if they were doing it for every seat in the house..... :-)
I wish Detroit would so something like this.

Is it just me or does this seem backwards...If they get Anthony Davis they will be able to sell tix, if they dont they are screwed and would need to do something like this....

More losing teams should take note, want to fill a stadium, this is what you do. Doesn't have to be that cheap, but you could easily break even (which is more than a lot of these teams are doing) just by selling beer and food (+parking).

Good decision for fans. Pathetic horrible business decision. Sell the team now you just completely devalued your product.
