The New York Knicks are fortunate to play in the middle of the world’s biggest city, but that in turns puts an extra burden on fans trying to find tickets. The Knicks already have the highest average ticket price in the NBA and that is twice as much as the average ticket price for the league.
Story should post soon. Bottom line is Knicks tix will go up avg of 4.9% and Rangers by avg of 9.5% as MSG continues massive renovation.

Madison Square Garden is undergoing a massive renovation, and it seems as though this is a good time for the executives to raise the ticket prices.
This is no doubt bad news for Knicks fans, just when the team started to look more like a contender, the big businesses decided to make it financially harder for supporters to attend a game.
