Draymond Green planning awesome gesture for Warriors' game vs Grizzlies

Throughout the season, a Golden State Warriors game at the Oracle Arena has been a hot ticket, but nothing compares to the interest - and prices - for Wednesday's potentially historic game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Dubs will be searching for a record-breaking 73rd win of the regular season against Memphis and, as a result of the incredible interest, tickets are going for as much as $300 for nosebleed seats and $17,000 to be courtside.

All that means average fans are likely to be priced out of seeing the Warriors' pursuit of history. Draymond Green, though, has a plan to make sure at least three worthy youngsters find their way inside the arena on Wednesday night.

Taking to Twitter this morning, the Golden State star explained:

"Going to buy 3 tickets and find an underprivileged kid in Oakland and allow them to witness history!!! Let's get it fellas!!!"

It is a nice gesture from the forward and, although it isn't yet clear exactly how he will decide which kid is lucky enough to get the tickets, it sounds like one unsuspecting group of fans is about to get the opportunity of a lifetime.

Kobe Bryant did something similar ahead of his final game in the NBA, also set to take place on Wednesday night.

With ticket prices for the Lakers' home game against the Utah Jazz spiraling out of control, the Black Mamba has been running a competition for two fans to get courtside tickets to what will be another historic occasion.

Both games will undoubtedly be must-see spectacles, but for very different reasons.

The Lakers game will be an homage to Bryant as the future Hall of Famer bows out of the NBA as part of a dysfunctional roster.

The lucky fans who are inside the 19,596 capacity Oracle Arena, however, will be seeing perhaps the greatest NBA roster in the league's history.

Victory over the Grizzlies will see Steve Kerr's team surpass the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' famous 72-10 season record and secure their place in the history books. By the sounds of Draymond Green's tweet, the players are fairly confident they can achieve the feat too.

Of course, win or lose on Wednesday there will be several more pivotal games for the Warriors before the 2015-16 season comes to an end.

Heading into the postseason as the best team in the league, the roster will be looking to secure back-to-back Larry O'Brien Trophies come June.
