While the rest of the NBA has stayed busy this off-season making blockbuster trades and free-agent signings, the Denver Nuggets have been relatively quiet this summer. The Western Conference has gotten significantly stronger with teams creating star duos, but coming off a breakout season in 2018, the Nuggets are in position to take another step […]

Most NBA players know that the business is related to their basketball career. To achieve certain goals, it is natural to have the right agent and mentor. This is the reason for Kyle Kuzma's decision to part with Priority Sports and Entertainment after about two years. When Kuzma entered the NBA in 2017, he signed […]

This year marked one of the craziest off-seasons of star player movement I can ever recall in the NBA. Now that all the major pieces have settled into place we can begin to speculate which moves made sense, which moves seem questionable, and which moves were downright head-scratchers that make no sense. The big domino […]

The Clippers hadn’t yet officially signed Kawhi Leonard or traded for Paul George when an email went out from the team to fans at 4:41 p.m. on Saturday, July 6, less than a day after the news broke about the potentially franchise-defining deals. The subject line: “Secure Your 2019-20 Season Tickets Now.” By midday the following Tuesday afternoon, the link in the email took recipients to the following message: “There are currently no tickets available. Continue to check back as additional tickets may become available for purchase at a later time.” No shock, but the buzz of adding the pair of Southern California-raised superstars, who will be officially introduced during a midday news conference on Wednesday, is already making Clippers tickets a hot commodity, according to data shared by SeatGeek. In the six days following the trade, the Clippers were the second-most tracked NBA team on a mobile ticketing platform (behind only the Lakers). Furthermore, the Clippers had six times the number of tracks compared to the same period the previous year, according to Chris Leydon, SeatGeek’s communication manager. “Star power is nearly everything in Los Angeles, and really drives interest and builds brands when it is combined with winning,” emailed David Carter, executive director of the USC Sports Business Institute soon after the moves initially were reported. “Particularly in this crowded market where standing out from the pack is an ongoing challenge.” LeBron James’ presence on the Lakers boosted their ticket sales significantly. The average ticket prices surged to $279 in 2018-19 from $167 in 2017-18 (a 67 percent increase) at home, and to $206 from $106 (94 percent) on the road. Star power is clutch, but winning will be important too, SeatGeek’s statistics indicate. Because there’s only one LeBron James. “I don’t think any player impacts prices as much as LeBron does, so I wouldn’t expect the change at this level,” Leydon wrote in an email, citing less-significant impacts on ticket sales associated with Paul George’s arrival in Oklahoma City and Kevin Durant’s in Oakland. “If the Clippers are as good as people think they will be, that will be more the driver of prices than anything else,” Leydon added. Of course, the Clippers were pretty successful on the court last season, winning 48 regular-season games and pushing the Golden State Warriors to six games in a best-of-seven first-round playoff series. But with a roster devoid of All-Stars, they finished the season averaging 17,325 fans per game, which was 20th in the league, and filling Staples Center to 90.9 capacity, which ranked 22nd, according to ESPN’s attendance report. The average price of a ticket to a Clippers game last season on SeatGeek was $72 at home (22nd in the NBA) and $81 on the road (15th). By comparison, a ticket for the Clippers’ home opener – with the date and tip-off time still to be determined – currently starts at $318 on SeatGeek. Carter fully expects the cost of a Clippers ticket to remain elevated: “Prices are a function of demand,” he said. “And there is no doubt demand will increase substantially.” And for the Clippers, there’s more at stake than filling Staples Center seats. “It’s important to appreciate that ownership is playing a long game here, intending to build interest and avidity in the team prior to moving to its proposed new venue,” Carter said, with a nod to the Clippers’ proposed 18,000-seat arena in Inglewood, which the team hopes to open in 2024. “It can and will raise prices in the near term, but the real money to be made is in building deep, committed fan interest over the next couple of years since it will be the new arena where big-time money-making will occur.” Think naming rights, sponsorship, seat licenses – and catchphrases. The Blue Wire Sports Podcasting online store started selling four Leonard- and George-inspired T-shirts soon after the deals were reported – merchandise met with immediate enthusiasm from fans, according to Kevin Jones, the company’s founder and CEO. “We’ve seen a huge uptick in Clippers merchandise sales,” Jones wrote in an email, noting that hundreds of the $25 shirts were printed in a few days’ time. “Hardcore sports fans have become big fans of real-time merchandising. We can capture their excitement about Kawhi Leonard and Paul George with something they can proudly wear.” New Clippers Merch just hit the store 👀@jovanbuha https://t.co/bCbZvshfai pic.twitter.com/NEU1psozs0 — bluewirepods (@bluewirepods) July 8, 2019 The top seller so far? “What it doo, Bayybee,” the design paying homage to the popular meme drawn from a video posted by Raptors center Serge Ibaka of Leonard. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”]“All eyeballs are going to be on the Clippers this year, so we are expecting lots more merchandise opportunities,” Jones said. “‘What It Do Bayybee’ is our top seller right now, and it’s just a tiny quote from Kawhi Leonard that got posted to social media. Younger fans love how we can take a moment from the internet and put it on a T-shirt. “I expect us to be printing new Clippers merch on a monthly basis.” Although both players have local roots, neither Leonard nor George arrives as the Hollywood player that James was, with his own production company, SpringHill Entertainment, and media company, Uninterrupted. Still, Carter expressed confidence that all the attention the Clippers are attracting combined with the opportunities intrinsic to the L.A. region will benefit the new guys driving the surge – as long as they succeed. “Provided they stay healthy and do not find themselves embroiled in too much off-court drama,” Carter said, “they’re both poised for not just greater marketability, but can also benefit from all that the region has to offer business-wise.”
