If you want to see Kobe Bryant’s final game, at Staples Center April 13 against Utah, it’s going to cost you. As of this writing, the least expensive seat on StubHub is $700 a seat — and that’s way up in the rafters behind a basket. If you want to sit in the lower bowl of the arena the cost is $2,000 a seat and up, and if you want courtside, well, I hope you were able to sell your tech start-up for a lot of money.

Or, you can make a small donation and take your chances.

Kobe is offering two courtside seats to that game up through charity, to raise money for his foundation and some others. Mark Medina has the details at the Los Angeles Daily News.

Bryant partnered with Omaze to give away two front-row tickets at center court that requires fans to make a donation as little as $10 through the charitable fundraising platform. Those fans will also have a chance to high-five Bryant and his teammates....

The proceeds will benefit The Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation, After-School All-Stars of Los Angeles, and the Positive Coaching Alliance.

Just follow this link to the Omaze Kobe site, make a donation of as little as $10 (but more is appreciated, this is for charity), and you are entered in the drawing for a true once-in-a-lifetime experience.

But you have to pay for your own beer. Which at Staples brings us back to selling your tech startup.
