You see? The lockout isn’t good for anyone.

Kendrick Perkins is hanging out with Stephen Jackson (obviously, he was arrested), Delonte West has his hopes set on a contract with… Home Depot, WNBA star Chris Bosh is inking his back with random birds, trees and a chick eating a skull (yep, this really happened) and, of course, I’m writing all of this in one ridiculously long run-on sentence.

But hey, at-least Kobe is staying away from the headlines, right?

Um…

According to the L.A. Times, Bryant was involved in a minor altercation on Sunday with a churchgoer who he believed was taking pictures of him with his phone. Reportedly, Kobe confronted the man (who has not been identified yet), grabbed his phone and after seeing no pictures, returned it and quickly left the Church.

The man later went to the hospital, where he was treated for a minor wrist sprain. The confrontation happened at St. Therese of Carmel Church in San Diego.

The lesson here? Don’t take pretend pictures of Kobe at Church, and you won’t end up with a pretend wrist sprain. We’ll keep you posted as this story develops.

    No, it wasnt a cool thing to do, but it is a KOBE thing to do. The man has ALWAYS been a jerk, I dont see that changing.

      Do you know Kobe personally?  How can you say he’s a jerk if you don’t know him?

      • Oh wow hai

        Hey what else do you expect some chicken head to say?

    First off, this is a house of worship, and nobody should even have their phones out, might less snapping away.  You have to at least respect God’s House, I mean come on, even aside from it being Kobe. Who in their right mind would have that much dis-respect for a place of worship, and to try and  make some money of a personal family moment, can’t a man have anything to his self??

  • Sssfeme2liv4

    reason he went to the hospital most likely was to have some proof so he can seek some funds, not cool at all

    I see a lawsuit in the near future.  Kobe’s to blame.  I mean, you’re a high profile person. You should expect a person to take a picture of you whether it is wanted or not.  That’s the price of being a celebrity. Hurting a person for taking a picture is not right at all, especiually when you’re right outside the Lord’s house.  Bad form, Kobe.

    yeah i don’t think kobe should’ve done that because he is a celebrity. what does he expect? but then again the guy shouldn’t be snapping pictures during church. and forreal ? going to the hospital for a minor wrist sprain ? 

  • e92

    Since when is it okay to use a cell phone in church? If the guy wanted a picture he should have asked for one when the service was over, and everyone was outside. There is a time and a place for everything. Kobe didn’t find any pictures on the phone, but that doesn’t mean the guy wasn’t going to eventually take a picture when he had the chance. Even if the guy wasn’t taking a picture of Kobe, him having the phone out led Kobe to assume he was, so #24 took action.
