Subsequently, the severity of game 5 of the NBA Finals makes for some wild storylines and some that go beyond the hardwood. An interesting story serviced today that involved a fans road to get to the hardwood and be a spectator for game 5.
Following from Darren Rovell of ESPN.
A person paid $133,000, including fees, for two floor seats to Game 5 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena to possibly see the Golden State Warriors win their second title in three years.
A team source said that a Warriors season-ticket holder sold the seats on the team’s Ticketmaster resale site on Sunday night. With buyer fees at 15 percent, the buyer paid more than $17,000 in fees alone for the pair of tickets.
While the face value of the specific tickets is unknown, some Courtside Seats for the Finals have a face value of $3,000 each, according to a document sent by the Warriors to fans during renewal time last year.
Whoever this fan may be, he definitely paid a pretty penny and his or her seats have become the most expensive seats in NBA history.
