Despite Drop, 2019 NBA All-Star Game Tickets On Secondary Market Still Historically Expensive

When the NBA All-Star Game tips off February 17 in Charlotte, tickets for the game  will likely be the most expensive All-Star game this decade. A week before the game, both the average asking price and get-in prices for a ticket to Charlotte’s Spectrum Center are the highest since secondary ticket marketplace began tracking data in 2011.

After price average prices reached a high of $2,865 last week, prices have dropped significantly with the game less than a week away.  The current average price of $1,648 is the 5th most expensive we've tracked this decade. The most expensive ASG cost fans $2,668 in 2016 at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. Two other All-Star games had average asking prices of more than $2,000 – The 2013 version at the Houston’s Toyota Center cost fans $2,620, and the 2011 edition at Los Angeles’ Staples Center settled at $2,486.

The cheapest NBA All-Star Game of the decade cost fans $1,146 at Orlando’s Amway Center in 2012.

In terms of get-in price, the current $650 cost for the cheapest tickets has dropped below the most expensive game, which was $785 for the 2015 All-Star Game at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The cheapest seat of the decade cost fans $185 at New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center in 2017. While the cheapest ticket has dropped close to 30% in the last week, it's still the second-most expensive 'get-in' prices we've tracked over the last decade.

Team captains LeBron James (West) and Giannis Antetkounmpo (East) drafted their teams February 7, 10 days ahead of the game. The pair made a pair of Golden State Warriors their first picks – Kevin Durant will play on James’ team and Steph Curry will play for Antetkounmpo’s team.

Charlotte’s Kemba Walker was the eighth and final pick of the first round of the draft, and will play for Antetkounmpo’s team. Walker is the only Hornet who was selected to the All-Star Game, but several other regional stars – New Orleans’ Anthony Davis and Orlando’s Nikola Vucevic – are also on the roster.

Not surprisingly, the best represented team will be Golden State with three players, while Philadelphia, Toronto and Oklahoma City each have two.


2020 Regular Season Update

UPDATE (6/12): Shams Charania is reporting the expected dates for the restart of the NBA season:

  •  July 30-Aug. 14: Seeding games
  • Aug.15-16: Play-in tournaments
  • Aug. 17: Playoffs begin
  • Aug. 30: Family/guests of teams arrive
  • Aug. 31-Sept. 13: Conf. Semifinals
  • Sept. 15-Sept. 28: Conf. Finals
  • Sept. 30-Oct. 13: NBA Finals

On June 4th, the NBA agreed on a 22-Team Tournament to restart the regular season. The tournament will take place in Orlando at the ESPN Wide World of Sports, a a 220-acre basketball, soccer, volleyball, lacrosse, baseball and competitive cheer complex. Fans, unfortunately, will not be allowed in the area.
Here's more information via Bleacher Report:

Twenty-two teams will take part in the 2019-20 season's conclusion. They include the 16 franchises in playoff position at the time of the NBA's suspension March 11 and the six teams within six games of a playoff berth.

Those six consist of the Washington Wizards, Portland Trail Blazers, New Orleans Pelicans, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings and San Antonio Spurs.

Teams will play eight regular-season games apiece before a possible play-in tournament for the eighth seed in each conference. The league will then hold its typical four-round playoff consisting of best-of-seven series.

Coronavirus Impact on the NBA Ticket Market

With the rest of the 2019-2020 season and playoffs being played in Orlando and without fans, we estimate the lost revenue for secondary market NBA tickets is just under $691 million for the remaining regular season games, and an additional $1 billion for the playoffs. That estimate is based on secondary market value, average attendance from the 2019-20 season, and the number of games canceled. This is not a precise measure, but the simplest way to benchmark the magnitude of losses, by team. Below is a breakdown of the teams with the biggest impact across the NBA:


Where To Buy NBA Tickets for 2019-20 Season

With the NBA season here, and there are more ways than ever to get tickets to see your favorite team or your favorite star. With the exception of the 76ers who blend primary and secondary listings on Stubhub, every team has unsold face value tickets available directly from the team.  Every team also has tickets available on the secondary market with anywhere from 1,000 to 2,500 tickets available for each game. With about the same amount of unsold face value inventory availability for some teams, it's critical to shop around to make sure you're getting the best deal. For 2019-20, many teams are also offering family packs and pre-loaded concession tickets which is another reason to check all options before buying.

How Much Are 2019-20 NBA Tickets

While the 2019 off-season was as active as any, whether the realignment of the stars impacts who's playing in June remains to be seen. Ticket prices, however, are already showing the impact of the off-season moves. In particular, the Los Angeles Clippers ticket prices has nearly doubled in price. Despite the jump, the Clippers still don't have the priciest ticket in the league. That belongs to their arena-mates, the Los Angeles Lakers, who unseated the Golden State Warriors as the priciest tickets in the league. With the addition of Anthony Davis, prices are up to $473 up 2% over last season, while Golden State's average fell 1% to $458. On the downside, Minnesota Timberwolves' prices fell from $140 to $58, making Target Center the cheapest place in the country to see a pro basketball game.

Most Expensive NBA Teams


In addition to the the Clippers, the Nets also have had a big jump on the secondary ticket market, with the addition of Kyrie Irving. With Kyrie gone from Boston, the Celtics have one of the biggest price drops compared to last season, with their tickets down 32%.

On the secondary market TicketIQ has Low Price Guarantees on all sold out NBA Tickets. That means if you find the same ticket for less, we'll give you 200% of the difference in ticket credit. TicketIQ is also the leading source of ticket market data used by major news outlets, like CNBC, Business Insider, Fox and others. Enjoy the TicketIQ blog for most in-depth coverage of the NBA ticket market and use to save 15% compared to other major tickets sellers.  

In addition to changes for 2019 prices, it's interesting to see which teams have had the biggest prices increases since 2011. While the Warriors at the top of the list is no surprise, the Spurs as the second biggest gainer shows the continued fan loyalty in San Antonio.  While Both San Antonio and Golden State represent a body of work over the decade, two of the other biggest-gainers for the decade are based more on expectations. While the Nets had a big jump in price for 2019, their spot on this list is driven more the result of theirt move from New Jersey to Brooklyn than anything else.

2018-19 NBA Tickets: Warriors, Lakers, and Knicks Most Expensive On Secondary Market

Most Expensive Prices for 2018-19

When a team wins back-to-back championships, their tickets are simply going to be desirable. For the fourth year in a row, the Golden State Warriors have the highest average secondary market ticket price; it’s risen by about 2% this year to $463. Right behind them are the Los Angeles Lakers with their new addition of LeBron James, who has single-handedly boosted their ticket prices to an average of $444. Beyond the two California clubs, no other teams’ average price breaks $300.


Least Expensive Prices for 2018-19

Unsurprisingly, the Charlotte Hornets and the New Orleans Pelicans are at the bottom of the barrel in terms of secondary market price, averaging $89 and $104 respectively. Both teams missed the playoffs last season and will face an uphill climb to change that this year. The Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trail Blazers, and Dallas Mavericks round out the bottom five. Both Minnesota and Portland will likely be in the hunt for a playoff spot, so there could be some value to be had in those markets.


Most Expensive Games

The NBA is a league driven by stars and the most expensive games reflect that reality. The 11 most expensive games on the secondary market either feature Steph Curry’s Warriors or LeBron James’ Lakers. The two games when the two teams meet in Oakland clock in with massive average prices; they currently sit at $1768 for the Christmas Day showdown and $1378 for a February faceoff. You’ll have to pay nearly $250 just to get in the building for either of those dates.

Most Expensive NBA Games 2018-19

Team Value Index

Based on each team’s average ticket price on the secondary market and ESPN’s season projections, we can determine each team’s value in terms of dollars per win. Looking at those stats, there are plenty of good deals to be had; the highlights include several playoff teams—the Indiana Pacers, Houston Rockets, and Toronto Raptors—towards the top of the list. On the opposite side of the spectrum, you’ll be paying a premium to see the struggles of New York Knicks.


Biggest Price Changes

LeBron James is arguably the NBA’s biggest name and his fingerprints are all over the secondary ticket market. After his departure from the Midwest, Cleveland Cavaliers tickets plummeted by an average of 42%. On the opposite side of the country, Los Angeles Lakers tickets rose by 48% per game. Outside of LeBron’s shadow, now might be the time to look into Toronto Raptors tickets; their secondary market fell by 29% despite their 207-18 success and addition of Kawhi Leonard.

Screen Shot 2018-10-14 at 4.06.52 PM

During the 2017-18 NBA season, only nine teams averaged 100% attendance. Combine that with the fact that the league lacks a uniform entry policy—most teams will accept mobile tickets, but some will only accept tickets on specific apps—and the primary ticket market may be your best bet this season. But no matter which market you’re shopping on, there are plenty of great deals for the upcoming NBA season if you know where to look.

NBA Christmas Day Games

Since 2011, the NBA has claimed Christmas Day as an opportunity to showcase the best the league has to offer. This year’s schedule features five games: the Milwaukee Bucks at the New York Knicks, the Philadelphia 76ers at the Boston Celtics, the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Houston Rockets, the Portland Trailblazers at the Utah Jazz, and the Los Angeles Lakers at the Golden State Warriors.

NBA Christmas Day Tickets

In terms of a bargain, the game to circle on the calendar is Oklahoma City and Houston. ESPN projects the Rockets and Thunder to be the second and fourth place teams in the Western Conference, respectively, but you can score seats for half of the price of the mediocre Knicks-Bucks match-up. The average secondary market price for a ticket at Vivint Smart Home Arena is $220 and the cheapest available seat is $75; you’ll have to pay at least $184 on the secondary market to get into Madison Square Garden.

The highlight of the day, however, is undeniably the Lakers’ visit to the Warriors. Understandably, the secondary market prices are sky high; the average resale ticket price currently sits at $1,820, while the get-in price is $248. Both of those rates are the highest ever for a Christmas Day game.



It may be getting colder as the calendar flips to December, but the 2016-17 NBA season is just heating up. There will be no shortage of marquee games across the league this month, including the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers hitting New York City, Tim Duncan's Jersey Retirement Ceremony in San Antonio and a slew of Christmas games. Each will serve as a top NBA game in December, with tickets to all games averaging over $500 on the secondary market.

Check out a complete list of the NBA's top-priced games in December below, according to TicketIQ:


12/7/16 Cleveland Cavaliers @ New York Knicks  |  Average Resale Price: $698.50  |  Get-in Price: $188

Want to see the defending champs when they invade the Garden next week? Expect to pay a pretty penny if so. The Knicks will play host to the Cavaliers on December 7 in what will be the most expensive NBA game this month. As it stands now the average resale price for Knicks vs. Cavaliers tickets is $699. If looking just to get in the cheapest tickets are listed from $188. It will be the first of two trips the Cavs make to MSG this season.

12/18/16 New Orleans Pelicans @ San Antonio Spurs (Tim Duncan Retirement Ceremony)  |  Average Resale Price: $639.98  |  Get-in Price: $231

The Spurs will honor one of their greats later this month when they retire Tim Duncan's jersey at AT&T Center. Welcoming the New Orleans Pelicans on December 18, the Spurs won't only host their most expensive game of the season, but it will also be their second priciest game this decade.

With the Spurs hanging Duncan's jersey in a post-game ceremony, Spurs tickets against the Pelicans currently own a secondary market average of $640. The cheapest tickets are now priced from $231 each.

12/22/16 Golden State Warriors @ Brooklyn Nets  |  Average Resale Price: $569.82  |  Get-in Price: $146

The Golden State Warriors are looking like the superteam they were projected to be this season, and they're commanding huge resale prices both at home and on the road. That will be in effect when they visit the Brooklyn Nets on December 22. Nets vs. Warriors tickets at Barclays Center have a resale average of $570 and the get-in price starts from $146.

12/25/16 Boston Celtics @ New York Knicks  |  Average Resale Price: $565.85  |  Get-in Price: $177

Two Yuletide games round out the top NBA games in December. The Knicks and Celtics have combined for a six-year absence on Christmas, and it comes as no surprise that this year's matchup is dictating big resale ticket demand. Knicks vs. Celtics tickets on Christmas own an average price of $566 and the get-in price is currently $177.

12/25/16 Los Angeles Clippers @ Los Angeles Lakers  |  Average Resale Price: $502.48  |  Get-in Price: $120

Out west, the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers will battle at Staples Center on Christmas, marking the fifth priciest NBA game this month. Both teams are long-term fixtures in the holiday game (the Lakers will play in their 18th straight Christmas game while the Clippers play in their sixth), Lakers vs. Clippers tickets on Christmas are averaging $502 and the cheapest tickets start from $120 each.
