Knicks Were Most Expensive NBA Ticket For 12th Straight Season

    • A group of four paid an average of $937 per game in 2021-22.
    • Despite making the playoffs once in nine seasons, the Knicks outpriced the Warriors, Lakers, Celtics, and Bulls.

The Knicks haven’t had much success on the court, but they still somehow managed to be the most expensive ticket in the NBA for a 12th consecutive season.

There’s little doubt about the team’s popularity and appeal for hoops tourists eager to visit Madison Square Garden — but a group of four paid roughly $937 to attend one game during the 2021-22 season.

Not only did the Knicks miss the playoffs this season, but they’ve only made the postseason once in the past nine years and haven’t won a title since 1973.

Yet they still ranked eighth in average attendance in the NBA (18,621) — a testament to the loyalty of their core fan base.

Trailing the Knicks in pricing were the Warriors ($740), Lakers ($712), Celtics ($596), and Bulls ($579).

The Warriors and Celtics are the only teams who remain in the NBA playoffs, but the Knicks, Lakers, and Bulls have retained the bandwidth, popularity, and big-market allure to keep NBA fans purchasing tickets — no matter how steep the price.
