Kobe Fans From Italy Quit Jobs, Drop $8K To See Game vs. 76ers
The power of a legend making his last hooray will have fans do crazy things. After Kobe announced this was his last season, a couple fans from Italy couldn’t miss out on seeing the legend play one last time. So much so, that they both quit their job and dropped over $8,000 just to see him play last night in Philly.
