While we're in LA, I would loe to catch a Lakers game, preferably the March 31 match-up versus the Mavericks or the March 27 matchup against the Hornets. My daughter will only be 10 months old, so I don't imagine that I will need a ticket for her, but my son will be almost 4 and will require a full-price ticket for any game we try to attend.
Couple of questions ...
~ Firstly, where is the best place to buy a ticket ... ticketmaster, stub hub, seat geek?
~ Secondly, is it possible to buy a cheap ticket (in the 300 sections) and then talk (bribe) your way into good seats later in the game?
~ Thirdly, is it possible to pick up decent tickets from scalpers outside the arena before the game? Or is that too risky given that I need three tickets and will have little kids in tow?
~ Finally ... if anyone here has season tickets and would be willing to sell me 3 good tickets for a reasonable price, please let me know.
Any other general ticketing advice would be much appreciated, especially from the experienced Lakers fans and season ticket holders. The Lakers are going to be hard to stop this year, and I would love to be able to one day say that I saw Kobe and Gasol in person, what a treat that would be.
man ticketmaster have tickets on sale now you can get them. Im also from Australia and this year I thought i would wait to get to la to see if i could get tickets from staples itself rather than pay big bucks and I did. Just days before the denver game, also got a ticket fro spurs. Ive already got tickets to several games for december-january. Just go to lakers website or nba.com and click on teams, lakers, then tickets. easy. register for ticketmaster.
Yes you can get cheap tickets. They also release more tickets closer to game day. I wouldnt buy from scalpers as undercover cops are outside staples and if they catch you will confiscate your money and ticket, some even pose to be scalpers.
Doubtful u will be able to sneak into a better section. Get your tickets now imo. But either way, shouldnt be a problem.
