Celtics management won't increase ticket prices (for the moment)

For the moment, anyway, management doesn’t intend to make its brimming base of season ticket-holders help float Garnett’s deal in the form of a price increase.

“Ticket demand is through the roof, which is one thing that will help. And then there are the playoffs, and more revenue comes that way. But this was a basketball decision.”

Though it would be a stretch to say that Garnett could almost pay for himself by virtue of greater ticket sales, playoff revenue and increased merchandising, there is more of a financially secure feeling on Causeway Street these days.
