The Golden State Warriors will be going for an NBA record 73 wins against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday.
It’s one of the biggest games in recent regular season history. A win here, and the Warriors will have bested the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls mark of 72-10 — a mark most figured wouldn’t come close to being beaten.
It goes without saying that the season finale, which is being aired over Kobe Bryant’s final game on ESPN, is the hot ticket in Oakland.
Always conscious of what’s happening around his team, Warriors All-Star Draymond Green has decided to give three tickets away to an underprivileged child in the Bay Area:
Going to buy 3 tickets and find an underprivileged kid in Oakland and allow them to witness history Wednesday!!! Let's get it fellas!!!

This isn’t someone buying tickets to an average regular season game and donating them to the less fortunate.
The cheapest ticket at Oracle Arena on secondary markets is $300 with court side tickets going for $17,000. All said, the average ticket on Stubhub is $436.
Knowing Green the way we do, he’s not going to be buying the nosebleed tickets.
Shortly after signing his current five-year, $82 million contract with the Warriors, Green donated a whopping $3.1 million to his Alma mater, Michigan State. It’s the largest donation from an alum in the history of the program.
Always proving himself to be one of those athletes prepared to give back to the community, this is the latest example of Green’s tremendous off-court presence in Oakland.
Good for you, Mr. Green.
