CP3, Melo Give Kobe Farewell Gifts After All-Star Game

on

Chris Paul gave his fellow West All-Star Kobe a cane, reading glasses, dental adhesive and compression socks. Appropriate for a 37-year-old like Kobe (or someone closing in on their 90th birthday).

Luckily for Mamba, Carmelo Anthony is a man with expensive taste — and/or he didn’t get the gag gift memo — and decided to pay tribute to the Lakers legend’s Italian roots with a magnum of 1996 vintage Gaja Barbaresco. This was also to insinuate that like a fine wine, the five-time NBA champion got better with age.
