Which is the most and least expensive city to attend an NBA game for you and 3 friends? For once, geography does not seem to matter. See interesting data here...

Here is an interesting survey of NBA (National Basketball Association) teams and how much it costs to attend a game.  Lots of interesting data on individual costs for various items, from tickets to parking.

This report compiled a "Fan Cost Index".  It shows how much a "basket" of items costs for you and 3 friends to attend a game in all the cities that have a franchise. I highlighted that in YELLOW and they are in descending order from most expensive to least.

Here is how the report characterizes the components of the Fan Cost Index (FCI):
The Fan Cost Index® comprises the prices of four (4) average-price season tickets, two (2) cheapest draft beers, four (4) cheapest soft drinks, four (4) regular-size hot dogs, parking for one (1) car, two (2) game programs and two (2) least-expensive, adult-size adjustable caps. Costs were determined by telephone calls with representatives of the teams, venues and concessionaires, along with information provided on the teams’ official Web site, or through outside sources. Identical questions were asked in all interviews.
