You Won’t Believe How Much a Warriors Fan Paid For Floor Seat For Game 7

The Golden State Warriors just completed a historical comeback in the Western Conference Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder by becoming only the 10th team in league history to overcome a 3-1 playoff series deficit. Game 7 certainly didn’t disappoint as the Warriors erased another first-half double-digit Thunder lead and closed the game out in epic fashion late in the fourth quarter. The magnitude of the game also did stop a pair of fans from dishing out a large amount of money in order to see Golden State make history according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

Those prices did not include any floor seats, which were sold out. But someone did go to the Warriors’ resale site, run by Ticketmaster, and purchased two floor seats for $29,000 each.

Although it’s quite difficult to justify paying that kind of money for a sports game, it was a thrilling contest from start to finish that saw the Warriors take command in the second half and put on a show for their home crowd. Reigning league MVP Stephen Curry dropped a game-high 36 points with seven 3-pointers. Klay Thompson scored 21 points including six three-points, which came just two days after his NBA-record 11 three-pointers in Game 6.

All of this has equated to a rematch of last year’s NBA Finals between the Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers. Last year, Golden State was able to top Cleveland in six games claiming the franchise’s first title in 40 years. The Cavaliers led by LeBron James have returned in hope of ending the more than half-century championship drought from the city’s professional sports teams. So if you thought that prices for Warriors’ floor seats were eye-popping, expect that number to be blown out of the water in the NBA Finals.
