The Golden State Warriors have taken an early 1-0 lead on the Cavs in the 2016 NBA Finals, thanks to Shaun "Stick Bug" Livingston turning in to Michael Jordan reincarnated, but that's not the only reason the Cavs find themselves fuming.
Turns out the Warriors and Oracle Arena are also charging Cavs players their house, car and clothes off their back to pay for the allotment of tickets given to them for friends and family to use while the Cavs play on the road, and the Cavs aren't having it.
ESPN's business robot Darren Rovell is reporting that the Warriors are charging Cavs players and team employees $1,300 for tickets in the corner of the lower bowl of Oracle, which is double the price that was requested during last year's Finals. When asked if Warriors players were being charged the same price, Warriors officials, of course, could not comment.
Everything is more expensive in the Bay, I think the going rate for a one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco is $2 trillion a month, but pricing out family members of the opposing team's players is a pretty lame move. When the series return to Cleveland for Game 3, hopefully Cavs officials force the Warriors' friends and family to stay in a hotel with the thinnest walls possible.
