Game 7 between the Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder was easily the hottest ticket in the NBA this season. There's a reason people were spending up to $30K for floor seats.

The average price was well into the hundreds, so anybody who bought a ticket was making a big financial commitment. Wealthier folks had no problem dropping that kind of cash, but it was a big deal for the majority in attendance.

Now, imagine that you've been a diehard Warriors fan your entire life, and you decided to save up and go to this crucial game. Or, maybe you love the Thunder and decided to fly half-way across the country to watch them scratch and claw in an attempt to reach the Finals.

But then, right as you're about to enter the arena, you're told that the tickets you bought online are counterfeit.

That exact nightmare happened to 86 people on Monday night.

It's pretty discouraging as a sports fan to hear that 86 tickets bought from StubHub, the largest secondary marketplace for such tickets, were fraudulent. Rovell added that these fans were refunded, but that doesn't make up for all of the money they spent to just get there as well as the anticipation of seeing such a monumental game live, only to be denied.

Given that Game 7 was completely sold out, StubHub didn't have the option to transfer them to other seats for free or discounted prices. It's a total mess, and they should seriously re-evaluate their screening process when accepting tickets to put up for sale moving forward, especially for big games like this.
