Ron Artest giving away NBA courtside NBA finals tickets

Two LA Laker fans got the gift of a lifetime when they were given two court side seats to Game 1 of the NBA Finals…. courtesy of Ron Artest.

According to TMZ, the tickets are valued at $9,000 a piece and were given away on Los Angeles’ Power 106 radio station.

“Most of my fans can’t afford the ticket prices to come to any of the games, let alone the Finals,” Artest told TMZ. “I wanted to treat a fan to something they would normally never have access to, so they could feel like one of the stars for the night. I wanted to be able to share my first Finals experience with one of my regular fans.”
Artest paid for the tickets out of his own pocket, which is pretty generous until you remember he makes $6.6 m a season!
