A Los Angeles Lakers jersey worn by Kobe Bryant in his rookie season, including two playoff games, has sold at auction for $2.73 million.
SCP Auctions said Sunday the buyer wished to remain anonymous, as did the seller, who had the jersey for 25 years. David Kohler of SCP Auctions had estimated the jersey from the 1996-97 season would fetch between $3 million and $5 million.
The nod from Pau was all it took.
Kobe & Pau’s chemistry during Game 2 of the 2009 Finals was something special 🙌
