Here’s how many hours you have to work to afford to see an NBA game

Watching your favorite NBA team play in-person could cost you more than a day’s work in some cities.

With the average National Basketball Association ticket hitting $56 in the 2015-2016 season, up from $53.98 the season before, an analysis from personal finance website ValuePenguin.com looked at how much tickets really cost the locals, based in part on average incomes in each market.

The evaluation multiplied the average ticket price for each NBA arena by three to replicate the average size of an American household — 2.58 people. They added average food, drink, and parking costs for the venues and divided them into an hourly wage based on average annual income for a 40-hour work week.
