Found June 12, 2012 on Philly Sports Live:
Evidently, people love to pay absurd amounts of money for Kobe Bryant-related products. Apparently, they’re also willing to pay to compete against him on the basketball court. Per the OC Register: “Kobe Bryant’s game-worn protective mask went for $67,100 via auction last month. In another exercise to benefit Bryant’s family foundation and fight youth homelessness, a July 2 H-O-R-S-E game against Bryant went for $23,200 in a week-long auction that ended Monday at 4 p.m. Pacific time. My favorite part of the eBay bidding history was one bidder offering $20,200 Wednesday and then cancelling it Friday with the explanation ‘can no longer pay.’ The H-O-R-S-E game will take place during Bryant’s annual Kobe Basketball Academy, held July 1-5 on the campus of UC Santa Barbara for ages 8 to 18.”

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.
