Tickets for the first Lakers game since the unexpected death of basketball star Kobe Bryant are on sale for just under $100,000.
As of early Friday morning Los Angeles time, tickets for the Lakers game on Friday against the Portland Trail Blazers at the Staples Center ranged from $650 to just under $100,000 on the ticket exchange and resales site StubHub.
Several tickets in the upper areas of the arena are listed for $99,000 each. Similar tickets in similar areas of the arena are also available on StubHub for around $650.
A statement on StubHub when buying tickets for the game says 100% of the profits from the next two Lakers games from the website will be donated to Bryant’s charity foundation.
“In honor of Kobe and Gigi Bryant, all fees for the Jan. 31 Lakers vs Portland Trailblazers game and the Lakers vs Clippers game — for whenever it is rescheduled — will be donated to the Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation,” the company’s statement said.
It is unclear whether or not the tickets are being listed at such extreme prices simply to help raise money for the charity.
