Some tidbits that you can drop on your bros during the action:
New Orleans has the lowest average ticket price for an NBA game at $30.20. New York has the highest at $97.77. Damn!
Miami has the highest fan engagement for NBA teams at 45.21, which is 33.2 times higher than New York—which is the lowest at 1.36. So, you pay the most money in the Big Apple and they treat you like a Big Assh&le? Gotcha.
