Mavs fans...how much would you pay for a finals ticket?

Forget about you season ticket holders, you guys are probably making $$ selling your tickets! But for those of you who don't have season tix, what would you pay? I only ask because I'm getting the fever to go to one of these games. For games 1 & 2, I would pay up to $400 for some upper deck seats...and believe it or not, I've seen a few go for that. For possible series clenching game 6 or 7 I might would pay $600-$700. What about you?

I'd probably pay like a max of $300 a ticket, but to be honest, I'd rather just save the money and find a good, packed bar and watch it on some big TVs.

I've started watching on Ebay and I've seen a few in the last hour go for $425-$510 a pair. The lower end of the price range is the end of the arena and the upper price range is 3rd deck middle of the pack seats. If I could find some seats near midcourt in the upper deck, I might go $450ish.

i'd love to go. ive been to 3 games this playoff season and want to go back. i've paid box office price for everything so far, so that makes it very difficult for me to drop 500 bux on a pair of tickets.

I'd never pay that kind of money to watch a sporting event live, unless I had a substantial amount of money riding on the game.

I think I'll watch from home and hope it's broadcast in HD. The beer is cheaper and I don't have to wear pants.

I'd pay MAYBE $300 for a couple for one final's game, just to say I've been. I really like watching from home at that price, though. I get to pick who I get to sit with, have all my beer/snacks pre-paid and within an arm's reach away, and no long lines for the potty during a time out.

I paid $550 for two tickets in sec 312.

There are several ebay listing that are ending AFTER the game starts. So there are hardly any ppl biding on those. You may want to contact the seller and see if they'd sell them earlier for a reduced price. There is a set of Platinum and lower levels that I'm keeping my eye on during the day.

I'd probably do $300-400 for seats if I didn't already have tickets. This is a once in a life time event, I'd rank it with going to the Super Bowl or the World Series (probably more like the Rangers going to the World Series for the first time). For you die hard Mav's fans like me and Marc this is truly the games to go to that has been 26 years in the making.

Hopefully some of you guys will look into getting season tickets for next year. You don't have to invest in the whole season, they have different options like 20 game packages and depending on how many packages you get (whole, half, partial) you can get an option for the playoffs like I did. PM me if you would like more information and I can hook you up with my account executive.

That's exactly right - because this is a first for the franchise. If they win this year and made a run for back to back next year, it'd still be great, but it wouldn't be quite the same.

I'll be back in the stands next year. I've had season tix 2 out of the last 3 years - the mini plans, but just didn't get them this year. Shoot me your exec's info! Oh wait, guess I have to pm you

There is a guy here at my work selling two tickets on the FIRST row, right behind the Heat, for $4500 each. I don't know if that is on the floor behind the Heat, or on the first actual 'row". It's not like I have that kind of cash laying around, so why ask? lol

That's gonna be a pretty damn boring game...is it like a practice??? I bet you don't get many takers as most people will be saving their money for the game on Sunday between the Mavs and the Heat.

I had plans already tonight that would have made me miss the first part of the game regardless. I might be going to game 2, not sure yet. I'll definitely be going to Game 6 when/if they come back to the AAC.

I predict the Mav's in 6(in fact I have a sizeable bet on 6).....at least that's what I'm hoping so I can see them one last time and clinch the championship while I'm in the house.

You have tickets to Game 6 ? If it happens and you have tickets we need to meet up.

Any of you guys tried to buy from scalpers? I'm considering just going to the AAC tomorrow and trying to find the cheapest ticket possible. I only need a single, none of my friends want to spend the money.
