Default Q for Laker Fans who live in LA

Im heading out west in November, going to a Lakers home game seems slightly blasphemous to me as a Celtics fan but i dont think i can pass up watching Dwight, Nash & Kobe on their home floor, so how much are decent tickets?



EDIT: And no i am not interested in a Clippers game.

you don't have to live in LA to know what good tickets are. you just have to have gone to a few games in your life

i have... and anything behind the net sucks.

nothing above the section 100-118

must bring a radio of some kind ( cant hear anything thats happening on the court )

you have to spend atleast 400$

Depends who they're playing against. A decent ticket for a game against the Bobcats are around 180-230, but let's say against Oklahoma, it'll probably go for about 350-400.

It also depends how you define 'decent'.

This is the seating chart.



I've been to 8 or 9 Laker games and have always sat in the last row of 101 or 111 and once at 318, which was really the best thing ever and the atmosphere back there was easily better than the closer and more expensive seats.
Word of advice to you, don't wear a Celtics jersey to a Laker game unless you want to be harassed by a group of angry Mexicans.

Oh and also








**** Boston.

Some sites will cut you a good deal....and there is always people selling tickets to the games they can't go to on craigslist and such

once found some guy selling tickets to seats behind the basket for $160

Somebody has to say it... a Celtics fan going out of his way to go to a Lakers home game against another team is a disgrace. If you want a good show from the Lakers wait until they play the freaking Celtics and support your team.

Sorry i have friends in LA and would like to go to a basketball game with them?
Your just mad i dont want to go to a clippers game.



It's possible to still enjoy basketball when your team isnt playing, i hate the Lakers as much as the next Celtics fan but would i pass up the opportunity to watch Kobe, Nash, Pau and possibly Dwight if hes back from injury in their own arena with their own fans and experience the difference between there and Boston? No. I dont often get to travel to LA so i think ill make the most of this opportunity thank you very much.

Come on son, since when is wanting to go to a basketball game a disgrace? It's not like he bought a Kobe jersey and a "Lakers #1" foam finger.

I'm a total Laker fan but I'd jump at the chance to catch a game in Boston.
