If you want to be in the building for Kobe Bryant‘s final game at Staples Center, it’s going to cost you. According to SeatGeek.com, the cheapest seats start at $681, and if you want to be in the lower bowl it’s going to start at $1,000 a ticket and climb from there.
Gilbert Arenas wants to see Kobe’s last game, but he doesn’t wish to pay those kinds of prices.
So Arenas took to Instagram and asked the Lakers for a 10-day contract at the end of the season.
Just tried to get courtside seats to #Kobes Last home game #smdh #SOLDOUT…..But yall know I keeps a backup plan…..as I look at the end of the lakers bench AND realize what #hibbert #metta @swaggyp1 been doing all season #WatchingKobesLastSeason in those NICE #CourtsideSeats….Buss you gotta let me be down..give ya boy a #10day from (april 3rd-13th) ill pay for the seat…I dont want the seat #metta sits in…that shit so far in the corner,I thought that nigga was security last time he wore all blk #NOTHX…..dont sit me next to #nick or #hibbert they #downsyndrome looks like its catchable,NOT paying top dolla to catch what them two #nighas look like they got #NOTHX hahahaha Just as long as im on the left side of that bighead nigha #sacre NO offence bra I wanna see the #Mamba not a life size #bobblehead version of #Mrclean AND far away from #byronscott as possible…the way he coaches,hes liable put anyone in whos sitting next to him (jack nickelson #batman go get #russell and u guard #cousin's #playhard) hahahaha ..can somebody let me know who I can contact for My request demands hahahahaha
I’d like to say this is just Arenas joking around but… it’s Arenas we’re talking about. He’d take that contract in a heartbeat.
I’d recommend the Lakers do it, not just because it would give me a lot to write about, but also because they don’t have enough distracting drama around their team already. Plus Arenas has proven to be such a good influence for young players around the league before, and the Lakers need that.
