Kobe Bryant isn't playing, but he sure as hell isn't going to let a rookie take his seat on the bench

Kobe Bryant sat out the Lakers' game Tuesday with a sore shoulder. He still wanted to take in some of the game from the bench, however, but there was one little problem: There weren't enough seats. Kobe's simple solution was to make rookie Larry Nance Jr. move.

When you're a rookie and Kobe Bryant wants a seat, you watch the game from the floor. It is Kobe Bryant after all. Fortunately for Nance's comfort, Bryant only watched part of the game from the bench so Nance had an actual seat to sit in during the second half.
