The social media are in uproar over a selfie photo of VP Leni Robredo taken while watching the Celtics-Cavaliers NBA playoff game goes viral online.
In case you don’t know, VP Leni Robredo attended her daughter’s graduation in Harvard recently and perhaps bitten by the the NBA playoff bug, she did not pass up the opportunity and watched a live NBA game, together with Aika.
Check out the photo below.
While watching an NBA game is nothing special to Americans, many Filipinos were shocked after finding out an NBA playoff ticket costs a fortune, especially to the average Filipinos who are earning below the minimum wage.
Well, that’s what the screenshots below from blogger Mark Lopez are trying to tell us….
According to Lopez, an NBA playoff game ticket from the balcony corner or the general admission in Boston Garden cost $663.
And a loge corner ticket costs between $900-$1000.
And guess what? A ringside ticket costs $5,000-$6,000.
Check out the full text of Mark Lopez’s viral Facebook post below that has been hotly debated on social media recently.

So how much is a ticket for a PLAYOFF game at TD Garden (pag sinabi nyo po playoff ito na po ung series para papunta sa championship. Iba po kasi ang presyuhan ng ticket pag regular season lang)
So anjan po sa baba ang mga presyo ng tickets sa TD Garden…
Pinaka mababa na po ung $663.00 or about P34,873.80 PER SEAT (sa current exchange rate na P52.60 to $1)
So kung 2 sila that would be P69,747.60.
Yan po ung pinakamababa na presyo ng ticket. Yan yung sa general admission.
Yung pwesto sa bandang gitna ang price range eh between $950 to $1,250.00.
Sa $950 x P52.60 is a whopping P49,970 PER TICKET X 2 = P 99,940.
Eh kung ung pwesto eh ringside o box seats kung san mukhang dun sila nakaupo?
Kayo na mag kwenta at baka pg hinimatay pa kayo pag na compute nyo eh kasalanan ko pa.
Ayan mga peeps, habang panay reklamo ng mga kasamahan ni VP Leni dito sa Pilipinas sa hirap daw ng buhay ngayon eh ayan ang kanilang lider (si Leni ang Liberal Party Chair) na walang kyemeng gumastos para manuod ng basketball.
Now tell us na hindi kayo nag bayad ng tickets nyo. Pano? May nag sponsor? Sino?
Well, baka naman nakatipid silang mag ina dahil imbes na kumain pa sila ng dinner sa isang fancy restaurant sa Boston eh nag meryenda na lang sila…”
