The Golden State Warriors have a chance to celebrate a title on their home floor for the first time since the franchise moved to the Bay Area if they can put away the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 on Monday. And it appears fans are shelling out big bucks for the chance to witness history.
According to ESPN, someone paid an NBA record $133,000 on the team’s resale website for two floor tickets for Monday night’s game. The person reportedly spent more than $17,000 just on buyer fees.
Fans who are not season-ticket holders had a chance to purchase Game 5 tickets Saturday on a first-come, first-serve basis with prices ranging from $575 to $975, according to the report.
