Yeah, I sat in the 2nd to last row on the 2nd tier last year when I went to a game. I saw the game, but it wasn't the ideal situation. Let's see what we can do about getting the best deal we can on decent 2nd tier seats, if possible.

I don't mean to spoil plans or anything, but my limit on tickets is $150 or so. Decent tickets in the second tier, even if they aren't between the baselines, are gonna run a lot more than that. I'm not gonna spend $300 just to go to the game in okay seats, that's just too much money.

I think I'm with Pete on this one. $150 is already an awful lot of $ to go to a game.



I'm still down, no matter the seat situation.

Awesome. I appreciate the understanding, dude.

Last year I sat in the 2nd to last row in Sec 316. The tickets were face value at $85 a piece. Is this the range we're looking for?



In my experience, you get the best bang for your buck sitting in the first two rows between the baselines, so we're talking either sections 317-319, or 301, 302, 334. I think the game looks kinda weird outside of that angle, unless you're really close.

If you can get the first or second row between the baselines, it's a pretty clear view. After fees and all that, we're looking at the $140-$150 range for those kinda tickets.

Can't we just hit up a scalper?

Sure. I'll talk to one of the regulars out there the next time I'm in that area. I'd be okay with that, I'm just a little worried about someone scamming us out of our money.

Oh dang. Pwned. Well done, sir.
Our biggest problem is going to be getting all the tickets next to each other. Gettng from a scalper makes that harder.

That's a good point. If we go over 4 people, we're not going to have a ton of options if we want to all sit together.

Personally, I'd rather sit in s**tty seats and have a bunch of us there. It's kinda like a Niner game. Unless you're in awesome seats you're able to see the game better from home. It's more about the experience, IMO.

It'd be awesome to go to LA Live or something after the game too.
What's the cholo situation at Staples?

Ya, I could care less if we're in the last row in the house really. I've never been to an NBA game and just being there for Magic/Lakers is worth the $ for me.

Whats this LA Live you speak of?

It's like a big entertainment complex across the street from Staples with a bunch of restaurants and bars and stuff.
Lakers Could Make Bynum Role Player
Oct 06, 2010 8:01 AM EST

Lakers coach Phil Jackson says he could limit Andrew Bynum's minutes significantly if he is bothered by a knee injury for the four straight season.

Los Angeles could turn him essentially into a role player over the long-term if it will preserve his health.

Jackson hopes that they'll avoid such a scenario this season, but it's a possibility if he suffers another knee injury.

"We're hopeful that this is the time he's able to start playing consistently through a season," Jackson said.

"If not, we're going to have to look at Andrew as a short-minute guy, somebody like Yao Ming who's going to be limited in the amount of minutes he plays."

Yao will be limited to 24 minutes a game for Houston this season and will sometimes miss the second game of back-to-backs.

"If his knee doesn't hold up after having this process, then we'll have to think about what kind of minutes he can play in a career," Jackson said.

"This would be a [fourth] consecutive year that things didn't go well. We're concerned. That's why we're giving this extra time, or the doctors asked for extra time for this to heal, so when this heals, his career can go forward instead of having these stops in the middle of the season."
Oh, and as far as me going to the game on the 14th is concerned, basically just let me know when you'll be purchasing the tickets and how much and if I have the money at the time then I'm in, if not...then...maybe next time?
