Game 6 of the NBA Finals is going to be a huge one and not for the obvious reasons. Yes, the Warriors will have the chance to force a seventh and definite game in the series and the Raptors will try to win their first NBA championship in the most hostile scenario they could imagine, but beyond that, Game 6 will mark the last game of Oracle Arena.
Considering the fact that we’re in the NBA Finals and that the Warriors will say goodbye for their long-term home, nobody would want to miss this game and just like we’ve seen through this series, the prices of specific locations in the arena will rise to the sky in the prior hours.
For example, before each game, Steph Curry takes a jumper from the entrance of the locker room at Oracle Arena as part of his warm-up routine. The buyers of a pair of available tickets to NBA Finals Game 6 will be able to see Curry doing his magic, but the opportunity will cost more huge money.
The best possible seats to watch Curry prepare are anything but cheap. The NBA Finals Game 6 floor seats closest to the Warriors’ bench were listed for sale Tuesday morning; seats 133-134 in row AA sit right next to the players’ floor entrance. The listed price for those seats is $48,422 plus fees, each. So your total price after adding in nearly $16,000 of fees is $112,823 for the pair.
This is actually cheaper than a set of four farther down the baseline starting at $61,000 apiece. The lone pair of sideline seats for the last Warriors game in Oakland was listed at nearly $79,000 each, as of Tuesday. If sold, any of those seats would break records for the highest price ever paid.
There is nothing else to say, this is the NBA Finals, this is a historical opportunity for the Raptors and the Warriors, who will be saying goodbye to the arena that hosted all the successes they had in recent years. Anyway, there won’t be much trouble trying to find a buyer for any of these seats, it didn’t happen in Toronto and definitely won’t happen in Oakland.
