Lonzo’s Assist as Lakers Sell Out Season Tickets

July 23rd, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Maybe Magic Johnson as club president is worth the price of tickets. Brandon Ingram, the second-year forward, could move the needle, too.

But most observers seem to think it is Lonzo Ball who is the key to the Lakers selling a lot more season tickets than they did a year ago.

And now they are gone. No more season tickets for 2017-18.

This contrasts with a year ago.

The Lonzo-less 2016-17 Lakers, whose latest deep dive in the won-loss stat led to the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft, with which the Lakers selected Lonzo — the Chino Hills native and one-and-done phenom at UCLA.

This site seems to suggest that Lakers tickets were easy to come by last season, with court-side seats going for $13,000 — or about $315 a game.

I am sure Lonzomania has driven that number north. Thing is, the Lakers have the fan base that can handle expensive tickets.

J.A. Adande of has taken a look at Lakers fans climbing aboard the Lonzo bandwagon.

Lonzo not only had a fine freshman season at UCLA, making his mark as a passer extraordinaire, he had a successful run at the Las Vegas summer league, apparently driving Lakers fans to buy up the remnant of season tickets.

Of course, Lonzo will need to come through and be a difference-maker. Lakers fans do not pay for mediocrity.
