Surprising Team Is Dead Last In NBA Season-Ticket Sales

Despite their current state of affairs, you just know it's impossible to get a ticket to a Los Angeles Lakers game. Same goes for those trying to get a ticket to a Golden State Warriors game. But which team ranks dead last in season-ticket sales? You might be surprised to learn it's the star-laden, but vexing Brooklyn Nets.

According to Brian Lewis of The New York Postdemand is off more than 30% from last season at this early point in the new campaign. 

A confidential league report revealed that only 5,500 season tickets have been sold at the 17,732-seat Barclays Center. The report was confirmed by an NBA owner and an insider who got eyes on the document. 

For context, last year's season ticket total in Brooklyn was said to be between 8,000-9,000. Could it be that the summer of discontent (Kevin Durant trade request, Kyrie Irving contract drama, Ben Simmons being Ben Simmons) has led some fans to say 'enough is enough'?

Lewis writes that the Nets "have chased away many loyal fans after jacking up prices on some seats by more than 50% for the team’s 41 home games at Barclays Center."

The Nets prefer to say that they don't rely as much on season ticket sales, but rather on game-night sales. 

Last season, says the report, single-game sales helped the Nets to finish 10th in average paid attendance.
