I also said that Bulls games are filled with corporate people and that the atmosphere is very dull, and many have said they agree with that.
I'd say check the market when Derrick Rose is healthy. 2 years ago I bet the Bulls resale market dwarfed the Hawks

Two years ago the Hawks resale market was pretty good but it depended on what games.

If there are Bulls tix going for that on Stub Hub, then yes right now the Hawks are killing them on the secondary market. I couldn't find anything for less than $150 in 300 level for Hawks for a recent game.

Bulls games are kind of dull and boring now. I agree with that as well.

It really didn't. For big games maybe, but there's too many garbage teams in the NBA that people don't really care to see.

Only big games are expensive - Heat, Nets, Knicks are what's left on the schedule.

Was curious how much court side tix would run on a Saturday night, pulled it up for next Saturday vs Brooklyn... $3200+.


However, you can easily find a night where you can get Bulls tix for $20 if you're flexible. You just can't do that any night with the Hawks. Hell, SRO for a Sunday night game against one of the worst teams in the league are still running $50.

Well, I've seen the Thunder, Bobcats, and Kings (season opener) this season all for under $30 per, but they were just alright seats. It was just enough that it was worth going but not enough that I'd pay much more than that to ever sit in them again.

Speaking of basketball and the Thunder, it's a big day.

-Illinois goes for another marquee win at noon at Michigan.
-The Hawks play tonight. Duh!
-The Bulls go to OKC tonight.

I am not going anywhere today.

Try vividseats.com - They take half of the commission that Stubhub does, and it's a Chicago company to boot.

I remember watching this as a five year old, glad to see it again. An absolute blast by Glenallen Hill.

I think I saw that too. Also brings up memories of Dave Kingman for me. Sent shots on or over that building. HR or strikeout. King Kong.

I was at the game where Bonds broke the window across the street.

The loudest I ever heard was when Cliff Floyd launched one in Pittsburgh. The mascot turned around and watched it go.
