If you were living in Cleveland and looking for something to do Wednesday night, all you needed was a few dollars to score some tickets for the game between the Cavaliers and the Brooklyn Nets. TMZ Sports discovered that some tickets just an hour and a half before tip-off were going on Flash Seats for as little as $2.
Look, we get it. It’s a lot to ask someone to spend nearly three hours in Quicken Loans Arena and watch a game where the best player on the court is Kevin Love, but this is still an NBA game we’re talking about.
Seemingly in disbelief over the $2 price tag, Yahoo Sports looked into this matter and found out that things don’t get much better for the Cavaliers going forward.
When the Cavs host the Indiana Pacers on Saturday, tickets on Flash Seats are going for $7. With the site’s 23 percent fee to the buyer, you can still score a ticket for a measly $8.61. Oh, wait! We didn’t tell you the best part. The $7 ticket for section 233 comes with a $5 voucher that you can either use on concessions or in the team store. This means that, technically, the ticket is $2.61.
With the team taking an expected free fall from one of the beasts in the Eastern Conference to a cellar dweller without LeBron James, the Cavaliers are losing a large chunk of their fan base in the process. If two dollars won’t even get you to come to a Cavs home game, what does that say about the current state of the organization?
