Gilbert Arenas asks Lakers for 10-day contract so he can see Kobe’s final game

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, 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.


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.
