Game seven of the NBA Finals broke four MAJOR records

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA Finals were a monumental victory for the Cleveland Cavaliers. It was the first major championship for the city since 1964, but this was just the beginning of many records that game seven of the NBA Finals broke.

1. Most watched game since 1998

2. Most tweeted sports moment of 2016

I can't imagine how many of those tweets were crying Jordan memes.

3. Most heavily bet NBA game EVER

Fans were heavily invested in game seven, but also in game six. 

"Not only was Game 7 the most heavily bet NBA game that I can remember in my 29 years, but Game 6 was the second-most," said Bill Sattler, director of specialty games for Caesars.

What's even more remarkable is people were betting heavily on both sides. MGM sportsbook assistant manager Jeff Stoneback said it took several six-figure bets from each team.

4. Highest non-suite ticket price

This was the highest non-suite ticket price for any event in Stubhub's 16 year history and the buyer paid for TWO tickets.
