People will buy anything.
As a Kobe Bryant-less NBA becomes a reality for basketball fans, some people just can’t let go of the Black Mamba. Kobe’s career had a storybook ending; he scored 60 points and wowed the sold-out Staples Center crowd last Wednesday. And if you thought tickets to the game were expensive, just wait until you see what a bag of “air” from the game is going for.
eBay user cardemon_husker2015 set the starting bid at one dollar, and watched the bids pour in. Before eBay got a hold of the bidding war and shut it down, the bag of air was going for around $15,000.
It’s still cheaper than the New Era fitted that commemorated the legend’s last game and was priced at $38,348.
If you’re in the market for some Kobe air, there’s always a pair of Nike Air Kobe’s available.
