With ticket prices sky-rocketing thanks to the return of Lebron, budget-conscious ticket-seekers will be typically be left exploring options in the upper level known as Loudville. The cheapest options in these 200 level sections are usually found behind either basket. When looking for tickets here, budget constraints typically limit the number of options you have - but there are some things you can look for to improve your experience.
If you can, you'll want to avoid sections 200 and 217. These are directly behind the basket which makes it difficult to see scoring plays on your end of the court. You'll have a great head-on view of the videoboard, but you'll probably be relying on it too much for replays.
Instead of sections directly behind the hoops, choose a section that is slightly more off-set. It's worth paying a few extra bucks to sit in a lower row as there is a significant difference between row 1 and row 17. The views deteriorate quickly as you get into double-digit rows and you'll have to deal with a large number of stairs when reaching your seats.
Our favorite rows in the off-set baseline sections are between 3 and 7. These seats are slightly less expensive than rows 1 and 2 but offer a similar view with fewer seats per row. They're also very close to the section tunnel at row 3. In sections 201, 216, 218 and 233, row 3 handicap-accessible.
