â†µA woman was tossed from the All-Star Game Sunday night for chiding Kobe Bryant for not playing through an ankle injury, despite the fact that almost every prominent athlete in every professional sport ducks out of such contests for pretty much any reason available to them. This woman, she was an insistent one, though, reminding Kobe that she paid $8,000 for her seat. Because everyone wants to hear how much your trip to a lavish sporting event cost. Security then ensured that she wasted at least $2,000 of that as they removed her before the start of the 4th quarter. â†µ
â†µAsked about her remarks, Kobe feigned disinterest. When Craig Sager then told him what she actually said, Kobe coyly replied, "She must not have SportsCenter." â†µâ†µ
â†µAnd thus became The Worldwide Leader's new slogan: "We will save you thousands of dollars." Also: "The show that gets plugged by Kobe on other networks." â†µ
