As they like to say, to the victor goes the spoils. In this case, the victor is the defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers, which are reporting a 98 percent renewal rate for season tickets, according to the Los Angeles Times. The team has the highest renewal rate in the league, according to the Times, higher than both the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers at 90 percent. The league average for season ticket renewals is 75 percent. Last season, the team’s renewal rate was higher at 99 percent, but considering the slow economy, the team said it was very pleased with 98 percent.
