Many basketball fans would love to be in attendance for the final game of Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant's legendary career.

However, anyone who has to buy a ticket to the game on the secondary market won't be able to get into the Staples Center on April 13 without putting a sizable dent in their bank account. That's how high ticket prices are now.

Fortunately, the Black Mamba is teaming up with Omaze to give one lucky fan (and a buddy) front-row seats to the final game of his 20-year career. The best part is that you don't even have to live in Los Angeles to enter. Thanks to Bryant and Omaze, the winner will be flown out to L.A. and stay in a four-star hotel.

Oh, you'd also get to high-five Bryant as he takes the court for the final time.

A donation (with proceeds going to charity) is required to enter the drawing. The minimum donation is $10, but the more money you donate, the greater your chances are—and you'll get some fun perk prizes. 

Obviously, the odds of actually winning the giveaway won't be very high. But as Lloyd Christmas would point out, no matter how long the odds are, you still have a chance. As a fan, that's all you can ask for.
