On Thursday night at the Nokia Theatre, there was an event called Kobe Up Close. The details: Jimmy Kimmel was going to interview Kobe Bryant for an hour, they were selling tickets for anywhere from $25 to $200, and all proceeds went to fight homelessness through Kobe and Vanessa Bryant's charity organization, which is partnering with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to help serve underprivileged families in Los Angeles.
