There are two ways of looking at the numbers from Star Tribune columnist Patrick Reusse’s interview with Timberwolves president of business operations Chris Wright.
Positive: Hey, the Wolves sold 2,000 more season tickets this year!
Negative: Oh, no: the Wolves had to cut prices so much that 7,000 tickets for this year are worth what 5,000 were last year.
Nevertheless, Wright points out that this means that more fans will be in the stands, which has to be a good thing for the team. (It is, however, a bad thing for those of us with seats in Row T in the end of the upper deck: fewer choices to which to move down.)
