Hopefully get some money for your bday.
If you just wanna go and don't care where you sit, get seats in the 300s.
Look for tix against crappy teams.
Maybe even look for tix for Lakers at Clippers games (though I would never do that, I would hate being in STAPLES while it looked that ugly, I need my Lakers home arena)
i've been to a Lakers at Clippers game when i was younger, i hadn't seen the tickets, i saw the Clippers logo and i was like "WTF!!!"
