Christmas is a special time for family, food, giving, and BASKETBALL! That’s right it’s that time of year again which means last minute mall runs and express online orders. Oh and let’s not forget a full day of NBA basketball featuring the best teams in the league. Personally I prefer watching basketball all day than putting on a sweater and going to random Christmas parties, but that’s just me.
Christmas Day Games
If you happen to be fortunate enough to hold season tickets for one of the five teams hosting games on Christmas Day, this is a great opportunity for you to make some quick cash. (Thunder, Warriors, Rockets, Lakers, and Heat.)
Just to give you a current figure, tickets for the Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors on Christmas Day are starting at $307 according to StubHub.com. In addition, the Lakers vs Clippers tickets are starting at $219.
But wait, there’s more!
Even if you don’t have tickets to these games, you can still take advantage of the holidays. The holidays are a retail goldmine and the best time to shell out those December and January tickets. I just put out most of my late December and January tickets, and in the last two days I’ve already sold tickets to four different games! That’s the fastest I’ve ever sold that many tickets and I expect that number to increase in the next week.
People are looking for perfect gifts, and what better than the gift of the game? It’s perfect for that special NBA fan who’s difficult to shop for. So if you have season tickets, get those December and January tickets out now because there is a demand for them. (Especially if you have Lakers tickets.) They will more likely sell now at higher prices than if you wait until closer to game day. I know I was able to get rid of tickets that I ordinarily would have had to undersell, but since I put them all out before Christmas, I was able to make a larger profit.
In case you were wondering, here is the full schedule for the Christmas Day games with channels. It should be a great day of match-ups, including the battle of the Texas teams, shared home court at the Staples Center and Kobe’s last Christmas Day game, and best of all, an NBA Finals rematch between the Cavaliers and the Warriors. This will be the first time these two teams have met since the Finals last June, and LeBron James and Steph Curry are sure to put on a show. With Steph Curry and the Warriors being the center of attention with a record breaking 24-0 start, it will be interesting to see how LeBron and the Cavs respond. That’s a game you definitely won’t want to miss!
