Just for the regular season that would be almost $11,000 for a family of four for the cheapest seats in the house. $18,000 plus for most of the tickets for a family of four for the season. Over $40,000 per year for a family of four for those lower level seats in the middle of the arena. That does not include parking, food, merchandise. Or postseason tickets which are at least 50% more in price.

I suspect a lot of other arenas are similar or worse.

Honestly, I am not sure what people want. It is a gate driven sport. At those prices you are going to have a lot of 'suits' who foot the bills. Are people surprised that 'suits' act like suits? I sometime think that people complain just to complain even when they know the reality.
Good point but that doesn't mean that we need to embrace their elitist mentality.
