If you think the Phoenix Suns are desperate for fans to show up for their games, then you clearly haven’t been paying attention to the Charlotte Bobcats. The ‘Cats are literally giving away free tickets if you can endure sitting through an entire game. From Deadspin: “The Bobcats, on the other hand, are just bribing people to hang out with them. Tipster Artavias sent in the picture above, and writes, ‘The Charlotte Bobcats are in severe trouble with attendance and the only way to get fans into the seat are by giving tickets away; and that’s just what they decided to do on Friday night. At the beginning of the 4th quarter the announcer presented the following: If anyone of your Charlotte Bobcats players hit a 3 pointer in the 4th quarter then we will give everyone in the arena a free ticket for Monday nights game vs the Portland Trailblazers. With 9 seconds left to go in a game that was out of reach with the Bobcats about to lose Nick Young [Kemba Walker, actually, with one second on the clock] hit a 3 pointer which lit up the approximately 9 thousand fans in attendance.'”
