Tickets to Game 1 of NBA Finals Reselling at Average of $1,000

Looking to fulfill one of your lifelong sports dreams of attending a Celtics-Lakers NBA Finals? You better be ready to take out a loan.

For anyone who doesn't have the privilege of shelling out the already-high prices for tickets at face value, the resale market is offering tickets at sky-high rates. As noted by The Wall Street Journal, the average resale price for tickets to Game 1 on Thursday nights is $1,071.

A quick search of StubHub shows Game 1 tickets going for as much as $16,000 each, while a look at Ace Ticket shows that parking alone will cost between $90 and $130.

The Journal cited SeatGeek.com, which said the prices for Game 1 is about 52 percent higher than they would have been if the Celtics were playing Phoenix on Thursday night.
