Four floor seats to Monday night's Game 5 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors just sold on the Warriors' ticket resale website for a staggering $93,000.

ESPN reporter Darren Rovell tweeted the news to his 1.4 million followers. Rovell noted in a separate tweet that the person who sold the tickets made $59,000 in profit, meaning the original cost of the tickets was $34,000.

To put that in perspective, the amount of money for the four tickets to Monday's game is around the same cost of a brand-new, 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan, which the automaker's website lists starting at just more than $95,000.

It's also roughly the same cost as one year tuition, plus all other expenses, including room and board, to Harvard University Law School during the 2015-2016 school year, according to the institution's website.

The cost of the coveted tickets is the equivalent to the price of more than 15,500 McDonalds Big Mac meals.

As the rest of the British economy hits turbulent times, the fast food giant said it was serving an extra two million meals a month compared with this time last year. (BEN STANSALL/AFP/Getty Images)
