Miami Heat -- $12,000 for a Courtside Seat

10/29/2010 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

What a difference a year (and 2 new superstars) make ... TMZ has learned courtside seats at tonight's Miami Heat home opener are SELLING for more than $12,000 apiece.

Miami Heat courtside tickets price:

A rep for Stubhub.com confirmed that they SOLD a pair of seats for tonight's game against the Orlando Magic for $12,942 each.

Just for comparison -- Stubhub spokesman Glenn Lehrman tells us ... last season, the most anyone paid for a courtside seat at a Heat home game was $2,250 when the Heat played the Lakers.

Stubhub wouldn't reveal the identity of the person who bought the $12k seats -- but we're guessing it wasn't a Cavs fan.

Just what the NBA needed, the Lakers East.

Now all that's left is to excuse the superstars from having to dribble at all (they're already allowed 4-5 running steps without getting called for travelling), to give the appearance that there MAY be a player close to Jordan's abilities.

I would never pay that type of money for any Basketball game, esp these days! But hey, if you got it that like, I cant hate. But I sure do miss the Jordan era!


BTW. Why does mostly every white man that comments on TMZ articles seem so insecure and jealous. Its pretty pathetic and its getting old.

I don't watch basketball, but i was 6'2" in school and played. But the other day i stopped on a game and "the guy stopped dribbling about the free throw line and just run up to a lay-up"

My point exactly, gi, thank you.

These marketing gurus with $$$ in their eyes all want to promote "The Next-(insert superstar here)". If the ability isn't there, they 'dumb' the game down so the stats are comparable to the best ever (Jordan) to sell endorsements.

The NHL did the same thing a la Gretzky.

It's a sign of the times...people can't be bothered to do a little research into historical figures, they want "THE BEST" in their face and live on their TV, all the time. To me all it does is cheapen true Greatness.
