Someone bought 2 tickets to Game 5 of the NBA Finals for $133,000

The Golden State Warriors have a chance to close out the NBA Finals over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 on Monday, and apparently, some fan really wants to see it.

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, someone paid $US133,000 for two courtside seats to Game 5 in Oracle Arena in Oakland, a new record NBA purchase. There were reportedly $US17,000 in fees for the purchase.

Rovell reports that the tickets were sold by a season-ticket holder on the Warriors’ resale site.

The Warriors also confirmed the purchase to Business Insider.

According to Rovell, there were two other big sales for “prime” seats on the site for Game 5 — one for $US90,000 and $US82,000.

Hopefully the buyers are aware that there is a possibility the Warriors won’t clinch the championship in Game 5.
