Is Laker legend Kobe Bryant a closet Boston fan? If seeing the above pic of the straight out of high school star isn’t enough to make LA fans cringe, now there’s pics of Kobe finally going to college (sort of) and it was Boston College.
I can’t image the surprise of the marketing students when they realized the man who dropped 38 points against the Celtics in the 2010 NBA Finals was in attendance.
Considering Kobe made over $32 million in endorsements last year to push his net worth up to $220 million, the teacher should have asked Kobe to be a guest speaker and talk about his deals with the Lakers, Nike, Turkish Airlines, Coke, Mercedes and Lenovo. Of course, there would be that one student (like me) that would ask Kobe why he was dropped by Nutella.
Anyways, I think it would be awesome for Kobe to get a college degree. Since he said he would have chosen UNC if he went to college then it would be cool if he enrolled and graduated at North Carolina so he could have one more thing in common with the GOAT.
