2015 NBA Finals Matchup Is Set

Last night, the Golden State Warriors finished off the Houston Rockets and punched their ticket to the 2015 NBA Finals. This means they’ll be going up against the recently unstoppable Cleveland Cavaliers, who blew by the Atlanta Hawks in four straight games to clinch their way to the NBA Finals. With the release of the NBA Finals schedule yesterday afternoon, and the two teams set after Golden State's win last night, everything is in place for a series that’s sure to be one for the ages.

With a regular season record of 67-15, the Warriors finished the season with the best record in the NBA, giving the team home court advantage throughout the playoffs, including the upcoming NBA Finals. The series will follow the recently reinstated format of 2-2-1-1-1. The series will begin next Thursday, June 4 at Oracle Arena in Oakland. The second game will also take place on the Warriors home court on Sunday, June 7 before both teams travel to “The Land” for games three and four on Tuesday, June 9 and Thursday, June 11. If further games are necessary to determine a winning team, the series will shift to Oracle Arena for game five, then game six at Quicken Loans Arena, and game seven back in Oakland at Oracle Arena.

Although this series could potentially last seven games over a two week duration, tickets are in high demand. On TicketNetwork.com the average price for a ticket to go to a NBA Finals game at Oracle Arena is $1,005*, with a starting ticket price of $632 for game one. Cleveland fans don’t have to dig quite as deep in their pockets, with the average price for a ticket at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena at $505, with a starting price for a ticket to game three at $363.

Rolling Stones

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, better known as The Rolling Stones, have kicked off their Zip Code Tour, which began on May 24 at Petco Park in San Diego, California.

The 15-stop tour is scheduled to end July 15, with all shows taking place in North America. The price of Rolling Stones tickets varies from city to city, below are some of the most expensive and least expensive shows of the tour based on our sales numbers.

The first show at the aforementioned Petco Park was the most expensive tour stop on the secondary market, so it can only get better for fans wanting to see them in concert from here on out. Petco Park had an average ticket price of $563.94 with a get-in price of $175. This is the only show of the tour thus far (as of 5/27) that had an average ticket price over $400. From California to Milwaukee, the band’s June 23 show at the Marcus Amphitheater is the second-most expensive with an average ticket price of $393.42 and a get-in price of $122. To round out the top-three, the July 1 concert in Raleigh, North Carolina at Carter-Finley Stadium is the third-most expensive tour stop, averaging $382.07 for tickets, with a get-in price of $115.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the July 4 show at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indiana is the least expensive show. The average ticket price is $204.06, with a get-in price of $60. There are two other shows that have average ticket prices under $210, that being the June 3 show at TCF Bank Stadium in Minnesota ($207.84, get-in $96) and the June 27 show at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, with special guest Ed Sheeran ($208.72, get-in $53).

The set list includes classic songs such as, “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like it),” “Honky Tonk Women,” “Midnight Rambler,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” and more.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, the band’s 29 studio albums, 18 live albums and compilations have garnered fans from all over the world for over 50 years.

Notable Quotable Sepp Blatter

With the recent arrests of top FIFA officials (not including Blatter himself), the sport regulatory body has been thrust into the spotlight here in the U.S. Possibly antithetical, considering professional soccer is still struggling a bit stateside, we do love a good scandal. Though there are loads to know about FIFA, the corruption charges, and their president, Sepp Blatter, we really want to highlight the man in charge. Here is our rundown of the dumbest piles of nonsense Sepp Blatter has ever said. This was a tough list to compile, we were spoilt for choice. Take a moment and hear what Last Week Tonight's John Oliver had to say, then we'll count 'em down.

So, in no particular order, here are our favorite* Sepp Blatter quotes.

"Let the women play in more feminine clothes like they do in volleyball. They could, for example, have tighter shorts."

The gentleman in charge of international regulations regarding the sport has some... interesting thoughts about female athletes. And by "interesting" I mean archaic and misogynistic.
