He can’t possibly need the money. For the love of God, Kobe, you can’t possibly need the money this much.
I’ll start that rumor though. Kobe’s got the same gambling addiction that Jordan had. It’s the competitiveness in them.
Because I doubt you saw it, but Kobe starred in a Chinese food delivery commercial, similar to GrubHub here. And it’s the most stereotypical commercial that I’ve EVER seen. Watch it right here:
Dude made $680 million in salary and endorsements in the last 20 seasons. Yes, he’s by far the most popular basketball player on an international level of all time, and I’m willing to throw him in the top 2 or 3 most popular international athletes. Someone give me 1 valid reason why ole boy’s flying out to China to do some damn food delivery commercial that can’t be paying him more than $50,000.
