Teams in all pro leagues have resorted to forcing fans to pay higher prices when marquee opponents visit. Some force fans to buy packages that include tickets for games featuring less attractive opponents for a chance to watch the best teams. The Minnesota Timberwolves have come up with an unusual way to market off another team's success for their upcoming Dec. 7 home game: a chance to high-five the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat players.

In an ad tweeted by ESPN's Darren Rovell, the Timberwolves are offering 60 upper-level seats that also allow the ticket-holder to join in on a fan tunnel and high-five the visiting Heat players as they make their way to the Target Center court.

Whether the Heat are aware of the Timberwolves involving their players in a road marketing play is not known.
