HOOPSWORLD.COM: Recently HOOPSWORLD.com was approached with the opportunity to purchase video footage featuring Los Angeles Lakers All-Star Kobe Bryant. In what was apparently a chance encounter outside of a Newport Beach deli, Bryant spoke openly about his frustration with the team’s personnel decisions.
It is outside of our journalistic ethics to obtain a video for money. However, the owners of the clip are committed to making the content public.
Having turned away a lucrative offer (by an unknown party) to destroy the tape, the group has put the video on the market to the highest bidder.
Whether they make a little bit, or as one of the gentlemen indicated, “more than a little bit,” eventually it will make headlines.
I have seen the video. Bryant is wearing a red shirt and sunglasses. Apparently the videographer and Bryant frequent the same establishment and are on general speaking terms.
