The cheapest way to experience Wizards basketball is in upper level sections 424-427 and 407-410. While these seats are the farthest from the court, they are affordable within most budgets.
When choosing seats in these sections, it's important to pay close attention to the row you'll be sitting in. In all cases you'll want to be as close to the front as possible - even if it means spending more money. You'll feel much closer to the action and it will also cut down on the number of stairs you have to climb to get to your seats. Row A is the first row in each section.
Restrooms in the 400 level are incredibly scarce - especially behind the baskets. Sit in one of the corner sections (or close to a corner section) for a shorter walk to the men's and women's facilities.
