Kobe Bryant was not having the kind of day that he wanted. He was hurting. He was probably tired (pretty safe assumption). He was a likely a little disappointed too after losing against the Oklahoma City Thunder and falling back below .500 rather than climb above it for the first time in months.
It has to be annoying that someone would bother to steal right off is back rather than just say 'good game.'
Chances are strong that he did notice, and since it was just a towel he probably didn't care. The only person that will know that the sweaty stench emanating from the towel belongs to Vino, the Black Mamba.
He probably didn't care. The Lakers can afford a few more towels.
It is still wrong. A line has been crossed there that should not have been crossed (security?). Today it was just a towel, but what's to say that tomorrow it isn't something more.
Fans already do all sorts of terrible things to each other at games (maybe more so at football games; I can't recall hearing about too many fights, shootings, stabbings, etc, at basketball games). What's to stop them from trying to take it a step further if it means getting their hands on a one of a kind memento?

Not sure what made the Hornets forget to guard Kobe Bryant, but with less than 30 seconds left in a two point ball game, Kobe squeezes through the New Orleans Hornet defenders for an easy dunk. Bryant scored 42-points in the L.A. Lakers 108-102 victory.
The Los Angeles Lakers are a flawed team. They must be to have the roster that they do and not be on top of the league rather than fighting for a playoff spot. However, if there is one thing that can be said about this flawed team it is this--you can never count these guys out.
Wednesday night the fans in New Orleans were happy thinking that there franchise was going to topple...

Looking at the Los Angeles Lakers’ recent success, Kobe Bryant seems to be a man of his word. After his “playoff-guarantee” a few weeks ago, Bryant has led the underachieving Lakers back to the .500 mark for the first time since Dec. 28 when they were 15-15.
Already having one his most efficient seasons of his career, Kobe has elevated his game...
During a recent special on NBA TV, Michael Jordan was asked who is the best player is in the game today, Kobe Bryant or LeBron James?
The six-time NBA champion and five-time league MVP's gives a bit of a mixed signal with his answer, but ultimately chooses Bryant because of his five titles.
Following the Lakers' 122-105 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kobe Bryant took to Twitter and gave credit where credit was due.

Kobe Bryant is in his 17th season in the NBA. Many expected the superstar to finally start showing his age this season and begin to slow down, but by all accounts that has not been the case. Shooting a career high in FG%, the Black Mamba is showing us that he still has plent left [...]
The Big Leagues The Lakers guard posterizes Josh Smith, then hits game-winner for good measure.
Since Kobe Bryant and his Lakers are playing right now against the OKC Thunder, I might as well post this look I missed from him during the NBA All Star Weekend.I like to keep my material fresh and up-to-date, but umm, YOLO(On this post). At the 2013 NBA Celebrity All-Star game, Kobe wore a chic printed $595 Givenchy Cotton Modal Airplane Scarf. The vintage military design of this...
The New Orleans Hornets blew a 25-point lead and lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 108-102 Wednesday. After committing supremely idiotic plays like this one, you can’t help but say they deserved to lose.
The Lakers faked out the Hornets on an inbounds play with 25.5 seconds left in the game by lining up on the side of the court they were defending, not the one they were attacking...
There can only be one T….
Here is a look at the press release that offers $5 million to Kobe Bryant to entice him to defend not only his reputation but also his victory from 1997. “We at Sex.com feel it is important for the sport of basketball that Kobe and Lebron face-off in the dunk contest and we want to be part of this historic event. The NBA’s best players used to enter...

A remarkable comeback in their latest contest showed how serious the Los Angeles Lakers appear to be about making a push for the playoffs.
Trying again to move above .500 for the first time since November, the Lakers hope to continue their home success over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night while trying for a season-high fifth straight victory at Staples Center.

Two crazy plays involving L.A. teams in the Association tonight. First possibly the best alley-lop in NBA history by Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin. And here's the Hornets forgetting what hoop they were shooting at after over 23 minutes of the 2nd half. Can the Hornets help out the Lakers any more? First they trade them Kobe Bryant and now they both a huge lead in such embarassing...
