If you’re looking for tickets to see the 2020 NBA All-Star Game in Chicago this weekend, then you’re in for quite the sticker shock.

According to TicketIQ, the average price for a ticket to watch the NBA All-Star Game Sunday between Team LeBron and Team Giannis will set you back $4,072, which is the most expensive in All-Star Game history. The previous record was an average of $2,668, set back in 2016 when the All-Star Game was played in Toronto.

The get-in price is over $1,000, too. So, even the nosebleeds will take a chunk out of your bank account.

It’s not surprising that tickets for Sunday’s All-Star Game are going so high. The NBA and its players will be honoring Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi throughout the game to remember them in a significant way after the tragic helicopter crash that took their lives, along with the lives of seven other people last month.
