NBA All-Star Game ticket prices a shock to the system
The NBA is here in Houston for Sunday’s All-Star Game. There are events at Toyota Center tonight, tomorrow and on Sunday. And if you want to go to the main event on Sunday night, there are some tickets left. But Kayla Ramsey of Midtown Tickets wants you to be prepared to spend big bucks.

“It’s different than it was in 2006. The prices are a lot higher this year. We’re looking at about $1500 for lower level tickets and about $800 to sit upstairs,” Ramsey said.
Ramsey said the few tickets that remain aren’t going fast because of the high prices. If you’re thinking about heading to the Slam Dunk Contest tomorrow night, that won’t be cheap either.
“Those typically run about $500-$800 dollars upstairs,” Ramsey said.
The cheapest tickets you’ll find for the weekend are for the events being held tonight.
“The Celebrity Game and Rookie Challenge are reasonable,” Ramsey said. “That will run about $50 to $100 each.”
