LeBron James’ record-setting night sends Lakers ticket prices TUMBLING as courtside seats for Thursday’s game drop from $100,000 apiece to under $12,000 after Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s scoring mark fell Tuesday night in LA
Ticket prices for Thursday’s Bucks-Lakers game in Los Angeles just became significantly more affordable.
With LeBron James passing fellow Lakers legend Kareen Abdul-Jabbar for the NBA’s scoring record on Tuesday at Crypto.com Arena, Thursday’s matchup with visiting Milwaukee has been stripped of its historical significance, thereby sending ticket prices into a tailspin.
On Tuesday, when James was still 35 points shy of tying Abdul-Jabbar, Ticketmaster had a pair of courtside seats at Thursday’s game listed for $200,000, not including fees.
But with James’ 38-point effort in Tuesday’s loss to the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder, courtside seats for Thursday’s game against the Bucks are now going for less than $12,000, with the lowest prices on Ticketmaster’s resale site dropping below $200.
