After 20 years of NBA action, Kobe Bryant called time on his playing career last week with a 60-point haul against the Utah Jazz.
The game ended 101-96 in the LA Lakers’ favour, and understandably fans everywhere are hunting for memorabilia from the game. Naturally Ebay is centre of the action with some sellers hoping to cash in big on the hype.
One user was set to land thousands of dollars with a bag of air that absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt, came from the ‘Mamba’s’ final appearance.
As reported by ABC7 the bidding reached over $15,000 – roughly £10,500 – before Ebay pulled the listing.
But the genie was already out of the bottle, and now numerous people are claiming to have exclusive Bryant retirement air for sale…
This air is ‘used’, but it hasn’t hurt the asking price any.
There are other gases available too…
This all seems pretty legit.
