Default NBA season tix sales flat; renewals slip, but good news for Raptors

Season-ticket leaders

NBA teams with 10,000 or more full-season-ticket sales, in alphabetical order:
Boston Celtics
Chicago Bulls
Dallas Mavericks
Golden State Warriors
Los Angeles Lakers
New Orleans Hornets
Oklahoma City Thunder
Phoenix Suns
Portland Trail Blazers
Toronto Raptors
Utah Jazz

Leading the NBA in season-ticket sales is the Utah Jazz, with nearly 14,000. The Los Angeles Lakers are second, with just under 14,000 full-season tickets sold. The Oklahoma City Thunder has sold nearly 13,000, while the Golden State Warriors have sold more than 12,000.

The remaining seven teams with the benchmark 10,000 season-ticket sales are the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, New Orleans Hornets, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors.

some more info

Highest average ticket price: Los Angeles Lakers, $93.25
Highest % change in average ticket price: Golden State Warriors, +25.3%
Cheapest available ticket: Dallas Mavericks, $2
Cheapest beer (per oz.): Denver Nuggets, 26 cents
Most expensive beer (per oz.): New jersey Nets, 48 cents
Cheapest hot dog: Three teams (Suns, Cavs, Hornets), $3
Most expensive hot dog: Golden State Warriors, $5.75
Most expensive parking: New York Knicks, $30
Least expensive parking: Charlotte Bobcats, $6

Team Marketing Report says that the average ticket price is up 2.8 percent to $49.47. But what we're interested in is what teams, in this economy, are more in demand this year than last? For that, we look at the secondary market and turn to the folks at RazorGator.com for the top 10 increases.

TEAM AVG. ' 07 PRICE AVG. '08 PRICE PERCENT INCREASE

OK.City Thunder $30 $118 293 Percent

Utah Jazz $24 $84 250 Percent

Chicago Bulls $65 $132 103 Percent

Detroit Pistons $35 $56 60 Percent

Atlanta Hawks $57 $81 42.1 Percent

Charlotte Bobcats $65 $79 21.5 Percent

Cleve. Cavaliers $60 $72 20 Percent

Toronto Raptors $86 $103 19.8 Percent

Portland TrailBlazers $75 $89 18.7 Percent

New jersey Nets $60 $70 16.6 Percent

I'm throwing out the Oklahoma City Thunder since they moved from Seattle. So judging from this chart, the Charlotte Bobcats are currently the best value in the NBA. Their average ticket price ($36.26) is 58 percent lower than the price the tickets are commanding on the secondary market.

That's great news.

I wonder what percentage of all these people leave the game before it's over.
