Recently, Shane Ryan of Grantland.com did a fascinating article about the Charlotte Bobcats and attending a game for arguably the worst team in NBA history.
Before attending the game, Ryan attempted to try and get some cheap tickets from scalpers and after having to haggle with them, Ryan got this verbal nugget from a scalper that went by the name of Noodles:
“This is the bummest goddamn spot in the goddamn nation,” he tells me. “Charlotte is the resting spot. This is where other teams rest their best players.” And what about ticket sales? “People come out here, they buy the best goddamn tickets for $5,” he complains.
You know things are bad when even the scalpers aren’t happy.
