Home, court-side seats to watch Los Angeles Lakers LeBron James try to break the NBA scoring record are on sale for as much as $75,000 a piece.
Online ticket broker Ticketmaster on Tuesday morning, hours before the Lakers play at home at Crypto.com Arena, had tickets for seats 166 and 167, near the home team's bench, each selling for $75,000.
James is 36 points away from breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s NBA scoring record.
The Lakers on Tuesday play the Oklahoma City Thunder and on Thursday play the Milwaukee Bucks, with those two tickets for that game on sale for $242,000, including fees, according to the Associated Press.
Abdul-Jabbar during his Hall of Fame career played for the Bucks and the Lakers.
There’s no guarantee James will even break the record Tuesday. At his current scoring pace, the 38-year-old star would be just shy of the record when the Thunder game ends, the wire service also reports.
