Fans often shell out absorbent amounts of money to see their team win the championship. And one fan went above and beyond to sit courtside for Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported Monday that a buyer paid $133,000, including fees, for a pair of courtside seats to Game 5 between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers at Oracle Arena on Monday night. Those seats, according to Rovell, are the most expensive seats in NBA history.
A Warriors season-ticket holder sold the seats on the team’s Ticketmaster resale website Sunday, and while the face value of the seats is unknown, Rovell reports, citing documents sent to season-ticket holders, that some courtside seats have a face value of $3,000.
So, it appears the buyer might have overpaid for his/her lavish seats.
But can you really put a price on watching a team win an NBA championship? The Warriors have a 3-1 series lead entering Game 5.
