Video: Fans who quit jobs in Italy to follow Kobe finally noticed

NBA superstar Kobe Bryant is on his final hurrah in the league and he is certainly going to go down as one of the best players in the history of the sports. The NBA has followed Bryant on his “farewell tour” this season and it looks like a pair of fans have done the same thing.

Two unnamed fans quit their jobs in Italy and spent upwards of $30,000 to follow Bryant during his final season. He played his final game in Chicago against the Bulls on Sunday and he finally noticed the two fans, who were appropriately wearing a number 24 and number 8 jersey.

That is certainly one way to get noticed. I don’t know where the rest of their journey is going to take them, but let’s hope they are at least able to get back home and find jobs.
