Throughout the NBA Finals, celebrities like Rihanna and Jay Z have been shown sitting courtside. There’s a reason for that.

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, one person bought two floor tickets to Game 5 of the NBA Finals for $90,000 on the Warriors’ Ticketmaster resale site. Another person spent $82,000 on a pair of tickets.

According to the Warriors’ Ticketmaster resale site, tickets for Game 5 of the NBA Finals are going anywhere from $685 to $57,000.

Last season, a fan paid nearly $100,000 for a pair of courtside tickets to Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
