The National Basketball Association had to deal with a lockout during the summer and many expected the league to suffer in terms of fan appreciation. However, Yahoo Sports reports that the league has not seen a decrease in the amount fans have been paying to see games.
The NBA has had record-setting television ratings and we now know that the average ticket prices to see a basketball game has increased for the first time in three three years.
The average ticket price for an NBA game is $48.48, which is up 1.7 percent.
