So I'll feel like an idiot if I get to the end of this and somebody goes, "Yo dude there's a guide posted on the sidebar..." but I don't see one so FP I shall.
Until a few years ago it wasn't this hard. Until the dawning of the great 8 and all these pieces coming together into consecutive division championships in a spot in the national spotlight it wasn't that hard to go up to the booth the day of a game and buy a reasonably priced ticket. Those days, evidently, are far behind. The biggest problem is, now that tickets are so in demand and all the prices have gone up I'm at school in Boston most of the year and can't make it to enough games to cash in on any of the package deals / season tickets that are available. So the question, what's the cheapest way to get single game tickets?
I've found ticket exchange / ticket master are usually 50+ and if I get to StubHub as much as a week before 30+ isn't out of the question. I've heard some people talk about the day-of release at Verizon as a cheap way to get tickets, does anybody know when exactly that happens / how many tickets there are / how much they cost? Also, a couple of the tickets I've bought off of StubHub have had original prices on them of less than 20 dollars, day 10 or 18, how in hell do people get their hands on tickets at prices like that?
Thanks for any help. If we don't already have a ticket buying guide, maybe we should get one!
