Kobe Bryant has been called many things on the basketball court and many things off it, but odds are this will be the most expensive thing has ever heard or seen.
Wife Vanessa Bryant has cited filed for divorce from the Lakers star, citing the usual irreconcilable differences. Some will wonder why the 2004 charges involving his extra-marital sex with a young Denver-area woman didn’t create this irreconcilable difference, but that’s not for us to judge.
What is for us to judge is how much money we think Kobe will hand over to complete this divorce.
The Kobe Bryant divorce odds at Bovada make a cool $50 million as the threshold. They have also posted numerous lines on his eventual new girlfriend.
The smart money has Bryant paying out less than $50 million at 2/1 odds. Tiger Woods would have laughed all the way to bank with such a pittance after his marriage broke down over some minor philandering he did over the year.
The sportsbook even draws a common thread between the two – Bovada has the golf star’s former wife Elin Nordegren as a 50/1 longshot to become Kobe’s next squeeze.
So just when Bryant and the Lakers thought they had serious problems heading into the new season, now there is another distraction. Will this make the Lakers a better bet to win the NBA title or a better team to fade?
