Tickets to Nets vs. Knicks season opener averaging $800

We’re just a few days away from the start of the NBA season so it makes sense to wonder what the hot ticket will be for opening night. If you’re a New York basketball fan, you want to be at the Barclay’s Center on November 1st to watch the newly minted Brooklyn Nets take on the New York Knicks.

What will it cost to get you in the door if you aren’t a season ticket holder or didn’t get your single game tix early? $800 gets you access to the nosebleeds. If you want to be close enough to reach out and touch Jay Z and Beyonce, and let your swag hang all over the hardwood. Courtside seats are going for $8,100 making this match up the priciest ticket in the NBA.


The average ticket to a Nets game is $132, with courtside usually running around $1,500.

I’ll be taking in the action via the much more budget conscious TNT option. Plus who doesn’t love seeing EJ, Kenny, Chuck & Shaq.
