Last week, L.A. Laker Kobe Bryant announced his upcoming retirement. Unsurprisingly, the news caused a huge spike in NBA ticket prices, with the final Lakers home game shooting up 240% from the day prior.

On Sunday morning the median listing price of a ticket to the game was $397, but it has now currently jumped to $1,350, an increase of 240 percent. More astonishing, the get-in price (cheapest ticket) has gone from $124 to $571.
