It appears so, at least. Last night the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Brooklyn Nets 95-90, and in the middle of the game Kobe Bryant and Gerald Wallace (at least according to the YouTube uploader) got in a bit of a bro-off. An expensive bro-off. Wallace, who was presumably taunting Kobe, stirred him up enough to get him to open up his wallet and bet $5,000 on an upcoming free throw.

Because Kobe, as you probably know, doesnt have any aversions to gambling.

Though we can only read his lips, heres what Bryant seems to say:

Make it or what? Im at practice *****. How much you wanna put? How much you wanna put? Put five (hundred?) grand? Right here?
Again, according to YouTube, he made the free throw. And based on that wry smile, were inclined to believe it was good.

Found this on my FB

in game betting? this has to be against the rules. stern needs to do something about this, especially after all the tim donaghy stuff.

Pretty sure it was playful banter more than anything, I was wondering what that was all about.

Wallace doesnt seem like a trash talker, it was probably joking around

in game banter...should be a non issue, even if Kobe does receive the money. Gerald was trying to get into his head in hopes he would miss the FT...trying to add a little more pressure to the situation...now if the bet that he would miss the FT, and he did miss it...

He shouldn't be punished, but the NBA should put out a warning for future reference. This type of stuff can't be going on.

I feel like Wallace is a PF he shouldnt have had to guard Kobe, he seems way to big for Kobe.

alexander_37

Yeah.

Because I guess to people who aren't " pretty G " it could give the league a negative rep to have players betting on court.

I take it none of you here have NBATV?

On the postgame show Kobe joked with Ernie that he was trying to get GW to contribute to his charity. It was hilarious. Both players were talking ****. No one said anything about it being an actual bet. It's not like Kobe went all Jordan-gambling-addict for all to see.

Trash talking like this (and worse) happens in most NBA games. Try getting seats nearer to the court and you'll see, er, hear what I mean.

Joe Johnson was doing a great job on Kobe. He is an underrated defender. In the 4th quarter when we went small and CJ Watson came in at SG he went ham.

Get off your high horse, remove the stick firmly entrenched in your rectum, and just enjoy the game of basketball for crying out loud.

I wish I had money where I could I just bet 5 grand on a free throw lol Whats 5 G to Kobe? Nothing really he probably uses benjamins as toilet paper. I loved how Kobe and Wallace were going at each other all game. Much respect to both!

This.

Kobe should be suspended for 5 games minimum.

Really? Some people think he should be suspended? It's not like hes betting against his team or hooked up with the mob or something. Just seems a bit extreme to me.

I was joking about the suspension.

Not sure if I actually have a problem with it but it might not be a good thing either.

To add, this is what happened... Gerald Wallace was telling Kobe to shoot the freethrow with his eyes shut and Kobe told him to put 5k on it that he makes it.

uhhh yes he did

You obviosuly didn't watch the actual game. Kobe missed 2 FT's earlier in the game.

On this occasion with Wallace giving banter, Kobe MADE both FT's.

Seriously some people really are ********...

uhhhhh you obviously did not watch the game, unlike me... uhhhh you are also obviously a laker/kobe hater thus the reason why you blindly keep arguing that kobe really did miss these free throws when he didnt... Here's a clip from the game, I KNOW you havn't seen this yet... ENJOY.. :D

I think Wallace was playfully taunting him into taking the next free throw with his eyes closed. At least that is what i read somewhere.
