SIXERS-CELTICS games used to be the hottest ticket in town.
Chamberlain-Russell. Erving-Bird. Andrew Toney, aka the "Boston Strangler."
Those days are long gone.
Last night, just a few hours before the lowly Sixers hosted the struggling Celtics, you could have had your pick of almost any seat in the Wells Fargo Center.
StubHub had lower-level seats in Row 12 for $24.29 each. Club box seats were going for $30.09. If you just wanted to get in the building you could get upper-level tickets for $8.05.
Even so, tickets to some Sixers games are commanding higher prices.
For example, less than a month from now, LeBron James and the Cavs come to town.
As of last night, StubHub tickets for that Jan. 5 tilt started at $59.09 for an upper-corner seat and went as high as $3,249.09 for courtside.
Say what Andy?
During yesterday's news conference, Kansas City head coach Andy Reid talked about how much he likes Dwayne Bowe, who - like every other Chiefs wide receiver - has yet to catch a touchdown pass this season.
"He never complains that he doesn't get the ball enough or wants the ball . . . He just wants to win and I appreciate that," Read said.
Reid went on to say that he was also "lucky" when he was with the Eagles because he "didn't have a lot of complaining going on,"
"Not even T.O.?" asked NFL.com's Adam Teicher.
"Not about getting the ball," Andy replied. "T.O. never complained about getting the ball. He got it quite a bit actually. There was never a time he complained about that. His was other things.
"But he's doing well now. He's got a reality show and he's getting all the balls he wants."
