11:15 AM PT — The L.A. Lakers just released ticket info for the Kobe/Gigi Celebration of Life. People who want tickets can register online right now at Ticketmaster. The tickets are going for 3 different prices — $224, 2 for $224, and as we told you, the upper deck seats will go for $24.02. The 24, of course, is Kobe’s number, and 2 is Gigi’s.
People who register will receive a code Tuesday and on Wednesday at 10 AM the tickets will be released for sale. If the demand exceeds the number of tickets — which is almost certain — fans will be selected at random to participate in the sale.
Proceeds will go to Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation.
The event will not be shown on the big screens outside Staples and law enforcement has told us they will block the streets off, but people will be able to watch online and on TV. The Lakers are urging fans not to go to the Staples Center if they don’t have a ticket for the event,
