      everyone does realize this is a business write off right?… even when kobe got his teamates watches for his mvp award… its a write off… its a nice thing for them to do and make sense for them to do it.. why wouldn’t they do something like that..

      just to put it in perspective for everyone this cost a total of $6300 for kobe… if you do the math of what he makes over an 82 game schedule… he makes more than that in one minute of a game..
