Should You Buy Season Tickets to See LeBron James? Quoted by CBS
Now that the Cleveland Cavaliers have made a much sooner-than-expected exit from the NBA playoffs, the big question for sports fans is this: Is LeBron James coming to an arena near you? And should you “invest” in a season ticket just in case he does? Already, the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls, two of the favorites to land LeBron, are reporting sharp increases in sales of season tickets for next year.
Aside from the Knicks and the Bulls, the Miami Heat and LeBron’s current team, the Cavs, are also in the running to retain the services of King James. And it’s not just the teams — it’s the cities that want a piece of LeBron, who’s exciting on the court, popular with fans, and appealing to advertisers, too. President Obama even weighed in, through his top advisor (and former Bulls season ticket holder) David Axelrod: “He doesn’t want to tamper, but as a Chicago fan, the president thinks LeBron would look great in a Bulls uniform,” Axelrod said.
