An Offer You "Shouldn't" Refuse
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
I’m writing this on April 13 for a very special reason. History will be made tonight and I want to do this before the momentous events take place. It is going to be an historic night in the National Basketball Association for two reasons:
- Kobe Bryant is retiring…finally. Tonight is his last game. Kobe has been a Los Angeles Laker for twenty years. (He has sweat socks older than some of his teammates.) He is the third-leading scorer of all time and has been an All-Star eighteen times. Now, that’s impressive.
- The Golden State Warriors are trying to win more games in one season than any team in history. If they win tonight, it will be their 73rd victory, while losing only nine times all season. That, too, is impressive.
Another thing impressive about tonight’s events is the price of admission if you want to witness either event. I just heard on the radio that the last available seats for the Lakers/Jazz game – two seats – were purchased for $45,000. And for the Warriors game, the average list price for one ticket (now sold out) was $1,594.
