With a chance for the Warriors to lock up their second title in three years at home on Monday night, Golden State fans are having to pay a pretty penny to get themselves in the stadium.
The high ticket prices are no surprise given recent trends at Oracle Arena since the Dubs’ run of success and the fact that if the Warriors win Monday night, it will be the first time a Bay Area sports team in the four major sports won a championship at home since the A’s in 1974.
It currently costs fans around $750 minimum for a ticket to Game 5, but if you want to get really up close and personal with the action, the price is much higher. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, a pair of floor seats for Monday night sold for an NBA-record price of $133,000 on the Warriors’ official resale market.

This purchase comes on the heels of a report from Rovell yesterday that said one pair of floor tickets sold for $90,000 and another pair sold for $82,000. The deep-pocketed purchasers of the floor seats could be diehard Dubs fans with a desire to witness a championship-clincher firsthand, or they could be the well-known faces who have dotted the courtside seats all series long like Rihanna or 2 Chainz. Either way, for their sake, hopefully the price proves to be worth it.
