The Celtics, who have the NBA's third highest average ticket price ($69), coined money during the 2011-12 season. The team made it to the Eastern Conference Finals where they lost in seven games to the eventual NBA champions, Miami Heat. The Celtics signed a Courtside Club naming rights deal at TD Garden with Sun Life Financial, who took over the rights from the Lincoln car brand. The team also raised cash by bringing in a new investor, Rob Hale, last year.
So, as the team heads into a rebuilding phase, does Wyc & Co. consider selling? Or are they in it to win it, especially with their new cable deal?
So these guys more than doubled their investment (on paper) in a decade.Not too shabby at all.
I would imagine the value of the cable deal could decline with the value of the team if a rebuild isn't quick and successful.
CSNNE is easily the most popular sports network in NE.

Is CSNNE that much more popular than NESN?I've never checked, but I'd be willing to bet the non-sports events ratings (since NESN does have the Sox and Bruins, as well as college sports) for CSNNE are way ahead of NESN. NESN's non-event related programming stinks.
