Facing a 2-1 deficit, the Warriors would be in a much better position if they can retake home court advantage before heading home to Oakland. Kanye West attended Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets.
The Warriors secured a win then, and it would be ideal if that scenario plays out again as West is reported to attend Game 4 of the NBA Finals. According to Tom Withers of the Associated Press, Kanye paid $16,000 for his seats:
Kanye West will be here tonight sans Kim. Told he paid $16,000 for his ticket. #NBAFinals

The pricing is absurd but it makes sense. The first two games went into overtime. The Cavs led by 20 late in Game 3, but the Warriors were able to trim it down to one. For any basketball fan, this series may go down as one of the best ever.
West was recently on air speaking about being friends with LeBron and Steph. He also mentioned his desire to have a Curry as a Yeezy athlete. Although unlikely, maybe, West sees this as a business opportunity.
