Boston Celtics-LA Lakers Game 7 Ticket Prices Skyrocket
StubHub.com is reporting that demand for the Lakers-Celtics title tilt is the highest in its 10-year history, according to the Los Angeles Times.
And the cost of a ticket is commensurate with the interest, according to the Times. StubHub reported that the average asking price for a seat at Staples was more than $1,100, double the cost for a ticket for last year's Finals between the Lakers and Orlando Magic.
Before the Lakers smashed Boston in Game 6 to force Thursday's ultimate contest, Fansnap.com said it was getting requests of $1,260 per ticket.
After the game, a spokesman told the Times that the price jumped to nearly $1,600 a seat. The spokesman said tickets in the lower bowl center court area were drawing prices anywhere from $3,800 to over $5,600 a seat.
No word on if the ticket prices include a soul kiss from Dustin Hoffman or Jason Bateman.
