NBA Fan’s Other Favorite Events Based On Real Data

With the new NBA season now underway, StubHub sent over some fun data. 

Such as the fact that if you’re a Sixers fan you’re probably taking your kids to Disney On Ice and that there are way too many people going to WWE. But hell, NFL tickets are way too expensive and certainly not currently a family affair

Below is each team’s fan base’s favorite music and theater events based on ticket purchase trends.

So there ya have it, folks. The more you know …

I’m a little surprised not to see anyone going to NFL games (Charlotte would rather go to a Knights game than a Panthers game?!), but it looks like basketball fans would rather take their kids to WWE or ice skating than a baseball game. 

Fun data. But parent’s will always do anything for their kids. The only thing that really offends me is not seeing Taylor Swift enough on this list.

Mmhmm.
