The Boston Celtics With A Few Bones To Pick This Year

boston-celticsThis season’s tickets are bound to sell like hotcakes, though a few standout games are bound to garner more attention and a faster rate of sale than others. Old arguments, new rivalries, and a competitive nature that spans back over 6 decades, the Celtics are looking at another great season of fiery, fierce, action-packed basketball against some of the most winning and deserving teams in the league. Will you be there?

For starters, the Boston Celtics will face their seven-game rivals the Chicago Bulls for the first time since the Celtics knocked them out of the run during the first round of the finals. The Bulls, we are quite certain, have not forgotten this defeat, but more likely have learned from it and allowed it to guide their training leading up to this year’s season. This big game takes place at the Celtics on October 30th.

On a reverse of the aforementioned scenario, the Celtics will host the Orlando Magic on November 20th, and this should be a very deep and telling game of the wills. Some roster changes have caused the Magic to gain experience, while the Celtics have earned the ignorance and power that is young new blood. The Celtics were dashed during their own game seven effort during the Eastern Conference Championships last year by the Magic, so this should be a great first tip off.

This is also the first year as a Celtic for ex-Piston player Rasheed Wallace, making the April 4th tip off between these two teams something to see. The Pistons weren’t necessarily on fore last season, and have since landed some big names and new tricks to their roster. All tickets for Boston Celtics tickets 09-10 season are on sale, and StubPass.com remains your secure and informative online ticket source.

New Home For The Orlando Magic Set To Open In 2010

Orlando MagicThe Amway Arena has played host to the NBA basketball team the Orlando Magic since 1989. This impressive streak, however, is about to come to an end. As of next year, the Orlando Magic will have a new home.

Starting in 2010, this NBA basketball team will begin playing in the brand new Amway Center. The plans for the construction of this arena were part of a $1.1-billion improvement package that also contained plans for making improvements to the Citrus Bowl and building a brand new performing arts center. Of the impressive amount mentioned, $480 million of that was set aside for the construction of a new arena.

Though there may be sentimental value attached to the current arena, it was past time for a change. There have been discussions to completely refurbish or demolish the TD Waterhouse Center since as early as 1999. The current home of the Orland Magic ranks near the bottom in the list of NBA arenas as far as overall capacity and luxury. After 7 years of discussions, an agreement was reached; a final approval was given in July of 2007, and ground was broken for the new arena in 2008.

Many fans are excited about the opening of the new arena in the not-too-distant future. This new sports and entertainment venue will contain flexible seating arrangements which can be altered to hold more or fewer spectators, depending upon the event. For NBA games, the Amway Center will be set to hold up to 18,600 fans.

Not only will this new venue be set up with seats for fans, but it will also house 60 private suites, 4 bunker suites, 4 party suites, and 2 super suites. These suites will be spread out across two levels, and contain a total of 1,400 club seats and 68 loge seats. Plenty of seats means plenty of Orlando Magic tickets will be available for fans to purchase at StubPass.com.
