While yes, seats right behind the Lakers bench or opponents bench offer a unique perspective of sounds during the game that you just can’t experience in any other section.

The chief hindrance is the average NBA player is currently 6’7” (Manute Bol came in at 7’7”), even the coaches are tall.

This equates to there being a good chance of missing critical moments of the game trying to look around or through NBA players and coaches.

Ticket prices to sit in section 119 behind the Lakers bench average game tend to run from $550.00 to $3500.00.

A better choice might be floor sections 110 – 112.

These seats are just as deliriously close to the NBA action like 112 & 110 are but at a fraction of the price and without a stiff neck in the morning.

Courtsides behind the baskets.

Section 106, 107, 115 and 116 are behind the baskets, but by sitting courtside in any one of these sections, you spend more time being closer to all both teams players than you do in middle courtside seats.

Behind the basket courtside seats although they are still expensive are a much cheaper option then center ones.
