Someone Tried To Sell Air From Kobe’s Last Game on eBay And Bids Reached $15,000

The scene at the Staples Center last Wednesday was wild. Nearly every man, woman and child was clad in a Kobe Bryant jersey, while purple and gold streamers and balloons lofted down from the rafters as Kobe’s voice echoed throughout the arena: “Mamba out.”

For attending fans who wanted to make some cash off of the experience, the Lakers handed out free shirts and commemorative books, which, at the moment, are going for quite a few pennies on eBay.

But the profiteering no doubt reached its peak this past weekend, when eBay user cardemon_huskers2015 tried to auction off a bag of air from the Mamba’s last matchup. The random Ziploc of oxygen eventually receives bids up to around $15,000, per Sports Illustrated, before eBay got wind of the pseudo-scam and took the listing down.

D-Dogg's wife was SUPER pissed before Ebay nixed the deal.
