NBA Finals Tickets: Good Luck!

(This is a part of Sports of Boston’s extensive coverage of the NBA Finals)

The NBA began selling tickets for the NBA Finals and the Celtics released a statement (see below) involving tickets for the home games. The tickets went on sale on Monday for home games 1 and 2 in Boston.

As you would imagine, tickets through Celtics.com and the box office are completely sold out, but if you’re willing to spend a lot of money, you can get in the game.

Prices on eBay generally run in the $1,000-$2,000 range, with prices as high as 60,000 (!!!) to sit next to Jack Nicholson courtside in Game 2. This same seller (user: musicalchairsticketservice) has two auctions that start at $60,000, and a few more that run in the $12,000 range. Ridiculous!

Here is the aforementioned statement:
