Ticket prices rise for Bronny James' expected debut

On Sunday, Bronny James is expected to make his collegiate debut in the USC Trojans' home game against Long Beach State.

The most expensive seats are going for $16,899 apiece on Seat Geek.

Bronny, the son of NBA superstar LeBron James, will start his college career six months after he suffered cardiac arrest in a team workout. The prospect of his debut has caused ticket prices to skyrocket for the matchup.

USC has announced Sunday's game at the Galen Center -- which holds a capacity of 10,258 -- in Los Angeles as a sellout.

The secondary market, however, is producing tickets at a sky-high cost.

The tickets that cost nearly $17,000 apiece, though, are not the norm.

LeBron James is expected to attend Sunday's game along with other celebrities who could join him.

The 6-foot-3 guard is expected to contribute to a USC squad with NCAA tournament aspirations this season. He will play next to veteran guard Boogie Ellis and freshman Isaiah Collier, the projected No. 1 pick on ESPN's latest 2024 NBA mock draft.
