Philadelphia 76ers Tickets at Wells Fargo Center Tickets in Pennsylvania

The Philadelphia 76ers, founded in 1946, is one of the oldest teams in the National Basketball League. They are members of the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference. Loyal and longtime fans frequently refer to the team as the Sixers.
The 76ers have won three NBA titles, but only two as the Philadelphia 76ers. They won their first title as the Syracuse Nationals in 1955; they also won the title in the 1966-67 and 1982-82 seasons. In all of their championships seasons, the Sixers had some of the biggest names to ever play the game on their rosters, names such as, Wilt Chamberlain, Moses Malone, and Julius ”Dr. J” Erving. From 1971 to 1975, the 76ers were, what many considered one of, if not the worst team, in the NBA, but thanks to the acquisition of Julius Erving and other key players, the 1976 was the beginning of a new era for the 76ers.
Hard times would once again fall upon the 76ers between 1992 and 1996; during this time, the best record posted by the team was a dismal 32-76 record in 1993. In 1996, the 76ers drafted Allan Iverson, hoping he would be the answer they were looking for. In some ways, he was, but the team continued to falter until the 2000-2001 season. The 76ers started hot and kept up the heat all year, making the NBA Finals for the first time since 1983, although they lost in seven games, the year was a huge step in the right direction. The 76ers continue to have up and down seasons, but show signs of heading in the winning direction yet again.

WELLS FARGO CENTER
Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Wells Fargo Center is home to the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League and the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball League.
The wells Fargo Center opened on August 12, 1996 and cost an estimated $210 million dollars to build. The arena seats 19,537 for hockey games and 20,318 fans for basketball games. The record attendance of 20,327 was set in 2010 during game six of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Chicago Blackhawks. In 2006, the Center installed a new center hung scoreboard and added LED displays lining the entire arena.
Performances at the Wells Fargo Center have included such acts as Ray Charles, Oasis, Bruce Springsteen, and Billy Joel. Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen received the honor of banners with the Flyers colors for their combined 101-sellout concerts in Philadelphia.
Additional notable events at the Center include Jeff Dunham, NCAA Women’s and Men’s basketball tournaments, WWE, Lady Gaga, UFC bouts, the Circus, Maroon 5 and 2010 amongst many other events.

Oklahoma City Thunder Tickets at the Chesapeake Energy Arena

The Oklahoma City Thunder is a member of the NBA and is part of the Northwest Division in the Western Conference. The team, formed in 1967, was originally the Seattle Supersonics. While playing in Seattle the team appeared in three Western Conference Finals and won one NBA Championship.
In 2007, the announcement of a move to Oklahoma City saw the end of the Supersonics and the birth of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Not unlike most expansion teams or teams that relocate, the inaugural 2008 season started slow, as the Thunder got off to a dismal 3-29 start. After firing both the head coach and assistant coach, Scott Brooks took over as interim coach and after losing the next four games, the Thunder beat the Memphis Grizzlies on the road to avoid the worst start since the team’s inception. The Thunder began to improve as the season went on, finishing the year off with a 20-30 record and a 23-59 record overall, which was an improvement over the last year’s record as the Supersonics.
In the 2009-2010 season, the Thunder improved significantly behind the leadership of Kevin Durant and a team that was hungry to win. With a 28-point win over the Orlando Magic and a 16-point win over the defending champion Lakers, along with big road wins, the Thunder began to make it known they were ready to be serious contenders. Finishing the year with a 50-32 record the Thunder earned a spot in the playoffs, but the Lakers beat the Thunder in six games.
The next two seasons saw much of the same as the Thunder continued to improve, with records exceeding 50 plus wins each year. In the 2010-2011 season, the Thunder advanced to the Western Conference Finals, losing to the Dallas Mavericks in five Games. In the 2011-2012 season, the Thunder made it to the NBA Finals, defeating the Mavericks, Spurs, and the Lakers. The Finals pitted them against the Miami Heat in which the Thunder lost the series in five games. The Thunder has shown that they have the desire and skills to win and will be a team to watch in future seasons.

CHESAPEAKE ENERGY ARENA
The Chesapeake Energy Arena is located in downtown Oklahoma City and is the home of the Oklahoma City Thunder of the NBA. The arena opened in June 8, 2012 and seats 18,203 fans for NBA contests. The arena has three levels of seating with the ability to add a fourth level for concerts, it also has 3,380 club seats and many party and private suites.
After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the NBA reached a deal that would allow the New Orleans Hornets to play their home games at The Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Hornets played at the arena for the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 seasons. The addition of a second NBA team put Oklahoma City on the map, after many considered the city too small to host a major sports team. The Hornets averaged over 17,000 fans per home game during their stay at the arena.
The arena has also hosted a number of wrestling events, including Smack Down, Raw, and Unforgiven. The National Hockey League has played exhibition games at the arena and has hosted the NCAAs Big Twelve Men’s Basketball Tournament Bon Jovi and Cirque. The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) has held an event at the arena since 2002. Chesapeake Energy Arena is an arena that can cater to the needs of a variety of sports, concerts and other events always leaving the visitors happy for their trip.

New York Knicks Tickets at Madison Square Garden

The New York Knickerbockers, better known as the Knicks, play in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference and call Madison Square Garden their home. Founded in 1946, the Knicks were members of the Basketball Association of America (BAA), their rival was the National Basketball League (NBL), and a merger between the two leagues in 1949, created the National Basketball Association (NBA).
The Knicks did well in the early 1950’s, appearing in the NBA Finals three consecutive years, unfortunately losing all three times. The next couple of years did not go too well for the Knicks, but a coaching change in 1960 seemed to rejuvenate the team and they began to show signs of their former selves, new coach Red Holzman helped the Knicks win an NBA title in 1970 then again in 1973.
In the 1990’s the Knicks were a consistent playoff level team led by Hall of Fame center Patrick Ewing. The 1990’s were full of great rivalries and the Knicks had three of them, the Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat, and the Chicago Bulls led by Michael Jordan. The Knicks appeared in two NBA Finals during this decade, first in 1994 and again in 1999, and were always a playoff contender. Since 2002, The Knicks have faltered somewhat, only making the playoffs three times. In their history great players, such as Bill Bradley, Walt Frazier, and Patrick Ewing have spent time on the Knicks roster.

MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
The present day Madison Square Garden (MSG) opened in 1968, prior to that it was located in two other venues. It is the oldest National Hockey League (NHL) arena, and the second oldest National Basketball Association (NBA) arena in the country. MSG is home to the New York Rangers and the New York Knicks respectively. The arena seats between 18,200 for NHL games and 19,763 for NBA contests, but seating can increase to above 20,000 for concerts and other events.
The arena has been host to some of the biggest named boxing matches in history, including the first bout between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali. Some of music’s biggest names have put on shows in the arena.

New Orleans Hornets Tickets in Charlotte North Carolina

The New Orleans Hornets were founded in 1988 where they began their franchise career as the Charlotte Hornets in the North Carolina city of the same name. After 14 years, the Hornets relocated to New Orleans. With the exception of a two-season stay in Oklahoma City, a move forced upon them by the effects of Hurricane Katrina, the Hornets have called New Orleans home. Today, the Hornets are members of the Southwest Division of the Western Conference in the NBA and play their home games at the New Orleans Arena.

The Hornets started their franchise career not as successful as is common for expansion teams. With the addition of Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning, the team made it to the playoffs in their fifth year. Despite filling their roster with several veteran players, the Hornets struggled through the years at Charlotte. In the 24 seasons the Hornets have been in existence, they have made it to the post-season twelve times. In 2008, they clinched the Western Division Title. Some of the most notable players in the history of the New Orleans Hornets include, Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning, Glen Rice, Kelly Tripucka, Dell Curry, and Muggsy Bogues. With the Hornets under new ownership, they could be on the road to more prolific seasons in the future.
