NBA Ticket Prices 2014

NBA teams consider a variety of factors when determining their prices for all primary ticket sales. Prices vary by day of the week (weekends are more expensive than weekdays), seat location, opponent, and city. Another important factor to consider is the quality of the team and the star players. For example, the addition of LeBron James and Chris Bosh caused Heat tickets to nearly double in value. Similarly, Dwight Howard drove Lakers tickets up by almost 20% and Carmelo Anthony increased Knicks tickets by 11%. Simply put, people are willing to pay big to watch the NBA superstars.

The chart below compiles data from the primary marketplace to depict each team's average face value ticket price. The NY Knicks and LA Lakers lead the list as the only two NBA teams with an average face value ticket price over $100. The NBA League average is $52.50.
