"I decided to offer a 25 percent stake in the horse, along with A Day at the Races, as a live auction item," said [Santa Anita CEO Mark] Verge. "What ended up happening was that Kobe and Pau got into a bidding war and Kobe finally outran Pau at $8,000."

In the end, though, Bryant and Gasol finally teamed up to buy a collective 50-percent stake in the horse. Look at how Bryant’s matured, you guys.
