Howard Beck of the New York Times reports (via blog):

LeBron James did not choose to take his talents to New York, but as a consolation prize he gave the Knicks a fantastic boost at the box office. The team has sold out its season-ticket allotment for the first time in nine years.

According to a Madison Square Garden spokesperson, the Knicks have sold more than 4,000 new season-ticket plans and have started a waiting list for interested buyers. The team is also reporting a 90 percent renewal rate among season-ticket holders from last season. (The team would not disclose the precise number.)

Single-game tickets, group plans and partial season-ticket plans will go on sale sometime in mid-September.
