Getting Tickets For the NBA Finals!

Filed under Mavericks

The Mavs beat the Suns last night 102-93 to advance to the NBA Finals! Tickets went on sale this morning at 10 am on ticketmaster.com. I tried for 40 minutes to get tickets without any luck...

Next I went to StubHub. My ticket strategy has been this: instead of buying season tickets and getting lousy seats to every game (including preseason, games I can't go to, and games I don't care about), I would spend more money and get good seats to the games I want to go to. It doesn't get much more desirable than this...the NBA Finals! So prepare to spend that money!

Now that I got my justification out of the way, here's what I got. For game 1 this Thursday, I got seats in section 105, row Y (lower level, facing the Miami Heat) for $575/ticket. For game 2 next Sunday, I got seats in section 120, row W (lower level, behind the Miami Heat) for $559/ticket. It is very likely I'll be on TV with the game 2 seats since the cameras are facing where the teams sit...I'll have my TiVo ready! Look for me on Sunday behind the Heat, I'll likely be wearing my authentic alternate (green) Dirk jersey. It seems like I would just blend in with all the other fans wearing jerseys...but that is not the case. I'm sitting in the rich people seats, and the rich people typically don't wear anything to support the team!

Congrats on your Mavs making the Finals! I'll look for you on TV. American Airlines has to be thrilled with the matchup since the Heat play in the AAA (American Airlines Arena), and the Mavs play in the AAC. This has to be a first for corporate sponsorship. Now I'd like to hear the American Airlines execs explain to stockholders why they're sponsoring not one but TWO sports arenas while continually declaring quarterly losses.
