"Darn Railing"

Seat Review From Section 410, Row 1
Apr 2014


I was curious what it was gonna be like in the first row of the 400 level. I read conflicting reports. Ultimately, the seats are pretty disappointing.

First, if you sit back in your seat, the railing is going to block your view unless you're about the size of Hakeem the Dream. This means you're leaning forward if you want to see the whole court.

Second, these are the most expensive 400 level seats, but they come with the longest walk up and down the stairs. Why did they put the upper level entrance at the top? Just punishes the fans who paid good money for the lowest rows in the 400 level.

Otherwise, Section 410 is a pretty good section to sit in. Right at midcourt. If I sat in Row 2, I think I would have had a much better experience because the railing could have been avoided. I would try sitting in 410 in the future, but more in like Row 5 or 6.

Best for... fans on a budget

Avoid if... you want to watch the game, you consider yourself "Big" and "Tall"

    At Row 9 I was seated in just the 2nd row from the top of the section, and thankfully it didn't require a far walk down the steep steps along the aisle. Being seated at the top of the section also provided quick easy access to the plethora of concession stands just outside the section, as well as g...

  • "Best Seats in the 400 Level Maybe"

    (Section 409) - -

    These might be the best seats in the 400 level. Row 10 is right at the tunnel for this section, so there's no walking up or down stairs. You're near mid-court, so you get a great view of the game and you don't have to worry about the railing getting in your way like the fans in Row 1. If you are... is the best way to search, compare and buy tickets. Select an event to find out why!
