$27,028: no sign of recession here!
If you’ve got a few stacks of bills lying around and an appetite for the NBA Finals, this story in the LA Times reports that twenty seven grand will get you a ticket to game five at the Staples Center. It’s apparently right behind the Lakers’ bench, but still….
Other interesting stats: NBA merchandise sales are up 80% since the playoffs began, TV ratings are up 20-40%, and website visits to NBA.com are 1.2 billion this season, a 60% increase from last year.
I have the Lakers winning in six.
