Knicks, Nets Are Top-Selling NBA(R) Tickets at TicketNetwork.com(October 18, 2013)
SOUTH WINDSOR, CT -- (Marketwired) -- 10/18/13 -- The 2013-14 NBA regular season is set to tip-off in less than two weeks. Not surprisingly, the two teams from the basketball-crazed city of New York have been the best-selling NBA teams at TicketNetwork.com.
So far, the New York Knicks have been far and away the top-selling team, accounting for more than one-quarter of all NBA regular season tickets sold on the marketplace. Sales of Knicks tickets listed through TicketNetwork.com have been aided even further thanks to their international popularity, with customers coming from countries like France, Germany and Australia.
"Basketball is a big deal in New York," said Tim Fraser, sports specialist at TicketNetwork.com. "The Knicks have owned the city for years, but with the big name players they brought this year, the Nets have started to slice out their own part of the 'Big Apple.'"
The additions of Kevin Garnett and Paul Peirce have made the Brooklyn Nets championship contenders this season, and their fans have definitely taken notice. Only in their second season in Brooklyn, the Nets have been the second-best selling NBA team at TicketNetwork.com, beating out the defending champion Miami Heat for that spot.
The season begins on October 29, 2013, with three games on the schedule: Indiana Pacers vs. Orlando Magic; Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls; and Los Angeles Lakers vs. Los Angeles Clippers.
