For those wanting to a see a once storied franchise scrap its way toward franchise contention, Lakers’ individual game tickets will go on sale Sept. 7 beginning at 10 a.m.

That may not excite as many fans clamoring to see if the Lakers can use their financial flexibility to acquire a high-priced free agent for next season. But considering the Lakers still dominate the Los Angeles sports landscape, it’s a safe bet plenty will flood Ticketmaster and flood 1-800-4NBATIX with calls clamoring for tickets.
