Consider yourself lucky if you have a seat at Staples tonight. The L.A. Times reports that Finals ticket prices are the highest they’ve been in a decade: “StubHub.com reported Wednesday afternoon the most demand for NBA Finals tickets in the website’s 10-year year history, with the average asking price of more than $1,100 a ticket double what it was for last year’s Finals between the Lakers and Orlando Magic. Even as the Lakers faced possible elimination in Tuesday’s Game 6, prices for Game 7 remained steady at $1,260 per ticket, according to FanSnap.com. When the Lakers won Game 6, FanSnap.com spokesperson Christian Anderson said the average ticket price quickly jumped to $1,562.71.”
