Wizards have NBA's 2nd-lowest opening night prices
There are a lot of reasons that people aren't selling off home appliances in order to buy tickets to this year's Wizards home opener. I'll try to list a few.
1) It's the night of mid-term elections, and we live in a city where that's kind of important.
2) Aside from that, it's also a Tuesday night.
3) The game features the Washington Wizards and the Philadelphia 76ers, who combined to finish 58 games under .500 in 2009.
4) The Wizards' most famous player is injured and might not play.
5) The game comes several days after the prized No. 1 draft pick has already made his NBA debut on national television.
So you'd expect that demand might be modest for this game. And secondary prices would seem to confirm that expectation. According to NBC Miami, Stubhub's average price for Washington-Philly tickets ($59) are the second-lowest for any home opener in the league this season, behind only Houston at Golden State ($54). The Wizards' first game, Thursday night at Orland, was the third-lowest, at $66. The priciest games -- Miami at Boston ($385 avg.) and Orlando at Miami ($348 avg.) were about six times higher than the Wiz number.
