As the preseason rolls right along, we have come to the point that it is time to look ahead to the regular season and what will hopefully be a glorious return for the Cleveland Cavaliers. With LeBron James back in the fold, the addition of all-star power forward Kevin Love, and the remaining components of last year’s team, led by Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson, there’s a very solid chance that the Cavs will be in a great position to advance deep into the playoffs. And perhaps, bring a championship to Cleveland.
With less than two weeks to go until opening day, it’s time to prep fans about opportunities to see LeBron and company in action this year. The first chance will be Thursday, October 30th when the Cavs host the New York Knicks. As previously reported here at Stepien Rules, the average ticket price for opening day is over $1,000 on the secondary market, according to TiqIQ. The cheapest ticket you will be able to find is currently going for $220. For those looking to luxuriously spend their Thursday evening, Cleveland Cavaliers suites are available for $25,575. According to SuiteHop, that is the most expensive NBA suite available for the 2014-15 regular season. Considering you’re getting a center court suite for the return of “The King,” the expense makes sense.
The cheapest ticket to a Cavs game this season happens less than two weeks following the opener when Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans visit the Quicken Loans Arena. The average ticket price for Cavs vs. Pelicans tickets is only $191 with a get-in price of $48. This also happens to be the second home game of the year for Cleveland. Fans who desperately want to see LeBron in action this year but don’t want to spend an exorbitant amount of money should consider this Monday evening matchup with New Orleans.
