The first on-court event of the NBA All-Star Weekend, the All-Star Celebrity Game sees the biggest names across various domains, be it Hollywood, music, or other performance arts fight it out on central court. While it most certainly isn't the most high-octane basketball you'll see, it's always fun to see your favorite celebs compete. Tickets for the game start as low as $100 on StubHub. In case you're looking for better seats, premium options costing as much as $600 and above are also up for grabs.
Day 1 - NBA Rising Stars Challenge Tickets
If you're interested in watching just how bright the future of the league is, the Rising Stars Challenge will set you up just for that with the most exciting rookies and sophomores set to face-off. The lowest ticket for the event is going around $50 but if you don't mind shelling the extra buck, you can get front row seats from Ticketmaster for around $400.
Day 2 - NBA All-Star Saturday Night Tickets
Contrary to the first day of the All-Star Weekend where tickets are sold individually for each of the two events, Saturday night tickets are packaged together to give you access to all of the Skills Challenge, the Three-Point Contest, and the Slam Dunk Contest. Behind-the-bucket upper row tickets currently have an asking price of $1299 whereas seats with a better view of the entire arena can cost as much as $5000.
Day 3 - 69th NBA All-Star Game Tickets
The main attraction of the star-studded weekend, the All-Star Game sees the highest demand for tickets given the fact that players play for fun and defense generally takes a backseat. Attended by superstars from across the globe, tickets to this game can burn a serious hole in your wallet. While the lowest priced ticket is currently available for $1499, if you're hoping to catch a good view of your favorite NBA players in action, you could have to shell around $14,000 with this price slated to go up in the lead up to the All-Star Weekend.
