Kobe Bryant who is known for being the 2nd most competitive athlete ever! That is after Michael Jordan…was in Las Vegas with his beautiful wife Vanessa for the opening of Blush Boutique Nightclub at the Wynn. He saw poker player Antonio “The Magician” Esfandiari buy two bottles of Cristal (The champaign Jay Z no longer supports in his 40/40 clubs or his lyrics!) champaign for $1400 a piece.
TMZ.com reports that insiders tell them that Kobe wasn’t about to be shown up like that (just two guys having fun wasting a few thousand) so he bought 5 bottles! Then Antonio copped 10! Then Kobe who is used to hitting game winners and silencing the competition threw in for 15 expensive bottles for $21,000…which immediately ended the game and Kobe and Vanessa trotted off in victory…You got to love this guy. He obviously does not pay attention to Jay Z though…Ashame his season won’t end as nicely.
