Kobe Almost Got Robbed

Ron Artest would make an awesome bodyguard, Kobe.

According to TMZ.com (Who has been covering so many damn sports stories, that it could likely pass as a sports website.), Kobe Bryant missed the Lakers shoot-around this morning. Guess why…oh, just the usual friendly, neighborhood, five suspect, armed and violent robbery.  No big deal.

No robbery attempts occured at the Bryant home, but with five armed felons running around the neighborhood I’d probably stay inside too.

Here’s what TMZ.com had to say:

It takes five gun-toting men to keep Kobe Bryant from stepping on the basketball court — we’re told the superstar had to miss a Los Angeles Lakers practice this morning in the wake of a violent robbery in his neighborhood.

Sources close to the team tell TMZ Kobe was issued an “excused absence” from a team shootaround at the Lakers practice facility this morning.

Unfortunately for the Utah Jazz, we’re told Kobe is expected to play tonight.

Kudos to the TMZ.com staff for that story. Look at all of those zingers in there: “It takes five gun-toting men to keep Kobe Bryant from stepping on the basketball court.” (Bazing!) and “Unfortunately for the Utah Jazz, we’re told Kobe is expected to play tonight.” (Double Zing!)

Who comes up with these amazing quips? Give that intern a raise! (Sarcasm alert.)
