Should I listen to what NBA fans say?
NBA fans. They can be out of control, although not nearly as undisciplined and capricious as the players. Jay Leno quipped, "Last night Kobe scored thirty-three times in Colorado -- and that was all on the court!" There's no question that those who pay for sports tickets, NCAA basketball tickets, college basketball tickets, and NBA tickets have bleacher-born insight the players don't have--other than Dennis Rodman, who used to sweep the court before he became the shock jock of basketball. So what should you know before buying NBA basketball tickets? A fan sampling:
- NBA basketball tickets for the America West Arena generally give you good views from most places but the seating is expensive and cramped when you watch the Phoenix Suns.
- It's hard to get Knicks basketball tickets at a good price, but for a NY fan, you can't beat Madison Square Garden. You can actually get half price sports tickets at TKTS in Times Square. The 400 level seats are the nosebleed seats.
- The Palace at Auburn Hills, MI has great views from every seat so you can watch the Detroit Pistons (just don't riot like fans did in 2004.)
- The Staples Center is "the mother of all arenas," but some fans say "go for the event, not the arena," because ordinary fans are shoehorned behind the three rows of luxury seats.
There's no doubt that NBA basketball fans are vocal about everything from NBA basketball tickets to who's getting traded, but if you get to a game, you'll be sitting with them--so respect what they say. Unless your seatmate free-throws a cell phone at a player.
