And apparently this
egomaniac's star's behavior isn't limited to the hardwood.
Britney Spears wasn't the only celebrity at a club opening in Vegas Friday, as the basketballer and his wife, Vanessa, rolled up to the grand opening of BLUSH at the Wynn.
That's when Bryant saw poker player Antonio "the Magician" Esfandiari kick in for two bottles of $1,400 Cristal champagne.
According to sources inside the club, Kobe Bryant wasn't about to shown up - so he ordered five (then promised to take 50 shots every game this season).
Antonio, who's used to upping the ante, then switched his order to 10! Go all in or go home, as they say at the World Series of Poker!
Kobe Bryant ended this asinine display of hubris by purchasing an astounding 15 bottles - which he had no intention of drinking, as he promptly left the club.
Just to put Bryant's "baller" status into perspective - Kobe's $21,000 bill still doesn't cover what Charles Barkley drops on one hand of blackjack.
And just to put Kobe's suckitude into perspective, he may not electrocute pit bulls like Michael Vick, but there's not much positive to say about the Lakers guard, either.
