A New Low for the Washington Wizards

Maxwell Ogden@MaxwellOgdenCorrespondent IIIDecember 7, 2012

Well, this is a new low for the Washington Wizards.

Thus far in the 2012-13 NBA regular season, the Wizards are filling an average of 76.6 percent of their available seats. That ranks the Wizards at just 25th in the nation in percentage of tickets sold, which proves one thing.

No one wants to watch a team struggling quite as severely as the 2-13 Wizards. So much for fan loyalty.

The latest chapter in the Wizards season, however, takes things to a new level of disappointment and embarrassment. A fan has listed his tickets on Craigslist in hopes of paying someone to go to the Wizards game against the Golden State Warriors on December 8.

That's right, this fan wants to pay you to take his ticket. $10 if you go and fill a seat.

 

 

How about that?

No team wants to see a decline in ticket sales. Even less teams want their fans to sell their tickets once they've purchased them.

This may be the first time in NBA history that a fan has offered to pay another person to take their ticket.

This isn't the end of the woes in Washington, as there are more than enough reasons to complain about Washington D.C.'s native ball club. One columnist offers his own bit of insight about the Wizards' arena.

Ethan J. Skolnick of The Palm Beach Post claims that his Verizon product does not work inside of the Verizon Center. But something else does.

 

As is always the case, my Verizon Mi-Fi card does work inside the Verizon Center. But my AT&T phone does.

Could it get any worse?
