An arena built in a city’s backyard and dedicated to the NBA is the ultimate deal.
It is a win-win for everyone involved.
But, that is not the case for a group of Redditors who were unable to get tickets for a game between the Chicago Bulls and the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.
The Bulls, who won the game 103-96, are hosting the Bucks at the Bridgestone Arena, and while Redditors in the area were able to buy tickets for the game, they did not have them at the venue on Friday, according to Reddit user nbattles.reddit user nbbattles was able to get his tickets through Reddit’s affiliate program, but when he tried to purchase them, he received an error message.
“They didn’t have the correct ticket to the game,” he said.
“The ticket that I had was the same as the one that was being sold.”
Battles owner Jerry Reinsdorf tweeted the following message, which the Bulls did not immediately respond to.
“Bridgestone arena was purchased by the city and was a win/win for both sides.
Thanks for your help in getting tickets for @BridestoneNBA.
We look forward to seeing you next week.”
In response, the Bulls issued a statement on the matter.
“We would like to thank our fans for the patience they showed and our partners for making this happen,” the statement said.
“Our focus is on our team and playing tonight.
We know we will be able to meet our opponent in the NBA Finals on Saturday.”
Bridging the Gap between the Internet and the Real WorldIt’s a rare occurrence in the real world.
But it happened in the online world as well, when the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers were able for some reason to sign NBA players to new contracts.
The Lakers signed Chris Paul, Pau Gasol, and Brandon Bass for a combined $107 million in 2016-17, which would make them the NBA’s biggest signing ever.
Paul’s deal was announced just over a week before the deadline for free agency, so his contract did not expire until Feb. 15, 2019.
But Paul is one of only three players in NBA history to play in more than 500 games and have a max contract, and the other two players were Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
Battens deal, which he signed just three days after the Celtics’ deal, is believed to be one of the biggest deals ever, and it is expected to pay him over $100 million over the next five years.
The Celtics have made a habit of making marquee signings over the past few years, and now that the NBA has moved beyond the “big name” teams, they are on the cusp of potentially winning a championship.
It’s not that the Celtics have a huge payroll, but they are among the most well-compensated teams in the league, with a total payroll of $153 million.
That money could make the Celtics a very attractive destination for many of their big-name free agents, especially as they have been rebuilding the roster.
However, this is the first time in NBA playoff history that the two teams are both vying for a title.
The NBA has made some moves to keep teams competitive over the years, like limiting how many games teams can field each year and changing the way the league allocates revenue.
The NBA is also attempting to encourage more online activity by increasing the number of players that can play on the same network and allowing more games to be played online.
