Another NBA finals are upon us and it will feature the defending champions Golden State Warriors and the first time finalist Toronto Raptors. Game 1 is scheduled for Thursday, and while both teams are getting prepared for the final stage, fans are getting tickets for a game that put the city of Toronto into a frenzy.

The ticket prices for game 1 have skyrocketed especially for the courtside seats which are hard to get and only a handful of people have the money to buy them.

StubHub which is a platform for buying sports, theater and concert tickets has recorded someone purchasing two courtside seats for game 1 for the price of $56,876.77USD which is $76,477.50 CAD. To put these numbers into perspective the average Canadian yearly salary is around 55k per year.
