The dirt-cheap season tickets are gone. Now Charlotte Bobcats fans who pounced on a ticket promotion will have to wait to see how cheap they’ll be – and who they’ll get to see when they use them.
The team said Monday that it has sold out of a block of season tickets that could be as cheap as $43. They were part of a promotion that began Wednesday, where the per-game price for one of about 500 upper-deck seats would equal the draft pick the team wins in the lottery May 30.
If the Bobcats get the top pick, and presumably draft Kentucky standout Anthony Davis, the season ticket would be $1 per game, or $43 for the season, including two exhibitions.
By finishing last in the NBA, the Bobcats are guaranteed one of the top four picks. If the team falls to No. 4 and takes a less-coveted prospect, the seats will be $4 per game, or $172 for the season.
Each person was able to buy up to four seats, which, since they were so cheap, did not come with the some of the normal perks. Buyers won’t be able to trade in tickets or attend off-the-court season-ticketholder events.
