By Gregory Crawford, Sports Business Analyst  twitter @wchoops @crawssportsbiz

No surprise here, but worth a mention. In 2013-14, the median ticket price on the secondary market for Cleveland Cavalier games was $69.00.

With the NBA schedule just announced, the 2014-15 median price is now $149.00. The "LeBron Impact" will be great for many years to come in the NBA.

Crawford's Sports Biz 59 Seconds, For August 16th, 2014

By Gregory Crawford, COO of Kiyokawa Crawford Sports Management and Sports Business Analyst for TV, Radio and Print.

Interesting to note that not much changes when it comes to the world of TV and NBA. This coming season will be the 13th straight year the NBA Finals will be on ABC. The Eastern Conference Finals will be on TNT and the West on ESPN.

During the season, TNT and its famous pre-game and post-game shows will be on for 19 Thursday night doubleheaders and 52 total games.

With the present NBA TV deal expiring after the 2015-16 season, you can expect during this coming season an announcement on a new, long term TV deal for the NBA and its partners.

Crawford's Sports Biz 59 Seconds For August 11th, 2014

Over recent years, the Philadelphia Phillies have been darlings for their fans. With their terrible performance on the field as of late, the team is suffering on the business side.

From 2009-12, the Phillies never had a year where they averaged below 44,000 in average attendance. This year the team is averaging just over 30,000 and as the season winds down, that figure could dip much lower.
