Ten years ago, armchair epidemiologist and fidelity poster boy Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers (apparently a basketball team) came down with food poisoning after eating a room service dinner of a cheeseburger and cheesecake at the Lakers’ Sacramento hotel. The Lakers won.
Last night, Bryant was again suffering from gastro but the Denver Nuggets crushed the Lakers, 113-96, forcing a game 7 in their playoff series.
Bryant was not available for comment before the game, ignoring reporters’ questions as he walked from the bus into the arena and down a corridor to the locker room. He headed directly for the training room.
