I wish I had asinine amounts of money to blow for strange fetishes. Kobe Bryant is the greatest basketball player of this generation, no doubt there. But when someone ponies up 23k to play a twenty minute game of HORSE against him, there’s cause for a bit of concern. The game of HORSE was auctioned off via EBay, and will take place during the Kobe Basketball Academy in early July.
He might have failed at winning another NBA Championship, but Lakers guard Kobe Bryant looks to have successfully saved himself millions of dollars by avoiding what seemed to be a sure divorce from wife Vanessa. I know that this is some trivial stuff for all of us, but this could be good news for Lakers [...]
