Golden State Warriors 2016-2017 Season Preview
The team with the hottest tickets in the upcoming NBA season–both at home and on the road–is the Golden State Warriors. Despite their loss in this year’s NBA Finals, after a record-setting 73-win season last year (plus the addition of Kevin Durant in the offseason) the extremely high demand for tickets isn’t surprising.
The average resale price to see the Warriors at home is $286, nearly 50 percent more than it costs fans to see the next-hottest team, the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers ($195). Rounding out the remaining top 5 fanbases that are showing most excitement for this upcoming season are the Knicks ($194), Lakers ($178), and Bulls ($148).

The Warriors also drive the most ticket demand on the road, with the average resale price to see Golden State for their away games sitting at $267, tops in the NBA. When the Warriors come to town, we expect that game to be each team’s hottest home ticket this season – everyone wants to see them play.
Comparing what we saw prior to the start of last season, the Warriors are the team with the biggest year-over-year increase in demand for tickets. Fans had paid an average of $200 on the resale market for Warriors tickets at this time last year – this season’s $286 figure is a 43 percent increase. Some other teams that have seen increased demand include the Washington Wizards (39 percent increase), Boston Celtics (37 percent) and Indiana Pacers (31 percent).
