I just went in for half the season for section 111 Ct row A at $700 a seat... supposed to have waitress service and chairman's lounge access. Not on the wood, right behind the wood with the walkway in front of us. Any thoughts or input from veteran season ticket holders? Seats worth it? Much appreciated!

I'd prefer to be about 10 rows up. Sometimes sitting that low makes it hard to see everything that's going on. There's also a walkway right in front of you so people will be walking in front of you the entire game. You will have great people watching seats though.

Sitting courtside is awesome man. People that talk bad about it probably havent done it before. You're close enough to hear the players talking, not just yelling during game but actually little side conversations they have. I think section 111 is right brhind he media table. Youll have a great season man. Enjoy!

I might join you my friend, I had no idea that the tickets would be that cheap for a 1/2 a season at court-side!

yes it, go for the full season. My wife bought me season tickets for this past year. We got invited to so many events: draft party, Summer League tours, and invites to all kinds of events and giveaways...well worth it my man

Don't Lakers courtside seats cost four figures each? $700 is a bargain compared to those, and you'll be watching quality basketball instead of the garbage Lakers.

for a number of years, a relative of mine used to get courtside tickets via business trade and naturally i got to head out there a whole lot (about where the kardashians always sit).

fantastic view, fantastic experience. just be ready to catch blake or DJ when they come crashing onto your plate of nachos.

the only drawback is the constant traffic of people you'll get in front of you. the HUGE plus is that you get to extend your legs as far as you want!

holler at me if you're not going to any of the games! I'd cough up a pretty penny for those seats

Dude, you are what's known in the Facebook world as a "humble bragger". Why not start a thread where you say, "I'm so f***ing successful, I can afford courtside seats!" At least you'd be honest with what you really want to say to us cyberstrangers.

It is most definitely worth it (not a STH) and if you can't make it to the big games expect to make your money back plus some. 8)

Row A is a great place to be. Yes you have the aisle in front of you but that is a good thing! The ushers are hardcore down there, nobody comes walking in front of you during the....

You sure he doesn't mean 700 a game for a seat?

My honest opinion is I would really like to be up a few more rows. I have only been at courtside twice,once in row b. I really felt not worth the money because you get to look a lot at the heads in front of you (right behind Ralph!) ,and once I was in front row on the baseline. Both times I was upgraded as a STH because no one came to the games so we got more perks! Personally I would rather be back at row 10 or so because my neck doesn't swivel as it did in the old days and they really do move (and you can't see the dang score board well). But if you got a real half season for 700 bucks you stole money from someone where my full season is 3500 way back in the middle of the 200s. But yeah,you hear all the yelling and the screaming on the court.

One thing,when you sit with the bigshots (you're basically in front of the hockey wall, you go to different bathrooms then the "unwashed" (the rest of us!) but you find out the rich are slobs in the restrooms too! I think the key is to try and sneak into the bigshot clubs they have there behind the scenes.

Yeah, 700 for half a season of games sounds like a steal on any level so I assume its 700 per game. I haven't the slightest idea what the market is for tickets like that so it might or might not be a bargain. I just can't help thinking it might be enough to buy a low-end car for Blake to dunk over, but I still might choose the games instead. Enjoy

Half the home games for my seat would cost 1k to sit in the corner at the top of the lower bowl, so i really hope you mean 700$ per game for half a season or i got some angry phone calls to make.

$700 is expensive! My seats are two rows behind your Row A and I sell them for around $250 - $275 per ticket. You do lose the waitress service, but for the $450 savings you can get your own drinks.

I've been a season ticket holder for 11 years now to secure such great seats. I'm always down to split the season with a couple good people. Email me at JPMarino99 @ AOLdotcom if you'd be interested in an 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 season with my section 110, row 1 seats.

A lot of people are reporting it, so I guess it's true. Should be a great/easy game for us.

Can't wait to see Kaman

Hey if you got the cash then why not? Most season ticket plans for all sports teams are very reasonable and offer massive discounts. I've had season tickets before to a different team and paid less than half the face value for my seats. Plus teams let you meet the players, attend special functions, get autographs and so forth. I'd say you'll be happy with your purchase and that seems fair to me. You can easily sell a few games and make some big money back too.

Lakers courtside seats are ONLY on the wood but Clippers have less seats on the wood from what I understand so Row A between the baselines right behind the wood seats are considered courtside and have all the perks of the wood. I am sure other folks here have more knowledge on this.

I think Lakers Courtside are well over 3k each per game per seat. I know the clipper courtside on the wood between the baselines are $1700 per game per seat. the baseline wood seats are a few hundred cheaper...
