It has taken more than 20 years for the Toronto Raptors to make the NBA Finals but when tickets went on sale Monday, they were a hot commodity.

Ticketmaster quickly sold out but there are still plenty of tickets available on secondary selling sites such as StubHub and Seatgeek if you want to skip a mortgage payment or sell your car for a chance to sit courtside.

That said, if you want to sit near Drake and help him provide backrubs to Raptors coach Nick Nurse you will have to step up a little.

Seatgeek has a pair of courtside seats in the endzone up for grabs for US$21,586.76.

Stubhub is also offering a pair for around US$22,000 as well.

If the series makes it to a Game 7, that will take place on June 16 in Toronto and that is when things start to get pricey.

Naturally, Raptors fans are not amused by the availability of tickets for the game.

One fan was able to score a really great deal on Kijiji.

Police are warning fans not to prepay for tickets on websites such as Kijiji or eBay and to only buy from reputable commercial sellers, adding tickets should not be assumed to be legitimate.
