Sat here for the Bobcats-Warriors game last December. The Bobcats lost as usual but we had great seats - these are club seats! Our section was behind the Bobcats bench. The entire section was very comfortable and sat very low to the ground. As a result, the court looks further away, as opposed to if the seats were higher up. We were in row Q, one of the last rows, which gave us quick access to the concourse. The concourses can handle big crowds rather easily during the game but before is a different story. Upon entering the arena on the bottom level where the Team Shop is, you'll ride an escalator to the main level.
The aisles weren't narrow at all and the usher in our section was great and showed us to our seats before the game. Every seat has a drink holder and this is a very welcoming arena for the visiting fans. There are a lot of transplanted New York Knick fans that live in the area and they take over when the Knicks are in town.

Parking for games is an easy task compared to other big cities perhaps because so many fans take the Lynx light rail which is what I what recommend you taking. Roundtrip is usually about $8 although you could technically get on without paying anything if you were willing to risk not getting caught by one of the Lynx police. Pretty sure they can arrest you if you ride the Lynx without a ticket.

Tickets for the club seats are pricey, $100+ for every seat, every game. The seats behind the goals are much cheaper and can get you just as close to the court, it's just that the view isn't nearly as good. Overall, I'm confident you'll enjoy your seats in section 104.

104 was great, you won't be disappointed. Just make sure you sit a little higher than usual since the seats face straight forward rather than towards the center of the court. Some NBA arenas are a little different but for the most part, this is the story at most of them. When you sit too close, you'll be looking way left as the ball advances towards the other side. But in general, every seat is a great seat at this place.

The upper level, while the tickets are cheap, is like a ghost town on most nights. The Bobcats' attendance is not the greatest so most of the fans are focused on the bottom level. So if you want to enjoy what little fan environment there is at this arena, then buy your seats in the 100s.

The beer selection is generous but not extensive. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the Uptown area surronding the arena so you can get away without spending any money on the outrageous concessions.
