You'll Have To Drop Some Serious Cash To See Kobe Bryant's Final Games


Last night, Kobe Bryant announced this will be his final season in the NBA.

In a poem he wrote for The Players' Tribune to make public his decision, Kobe said,

And if you want to say goodbye to Kobe in person, it's going to cost you a nice chunk of change to do so.

Following Kobe's retirement announcement, secondary market ticket prices to see the Lakers soared considerably.

The average ticket price for LA's final regular-season home game against the Spurs rose by a reported 240 percent. As of today, it's going to cost you at least $571 just to get in the building.

And in case you're trying to spend racks and catch some of Kobe's sweat or something, you and a friend can sit in the lower bowl of Staples Center for a cool $21,000 a piece.

Folks who want to see the Black Mamba wish ticket prices would look something like Best Buy's prices on Black Friday.
