Tomorrow, Kobe Bryant is getting PAID. That's because, thanks to Kobe's agent Rob Pelinka, the Black Mamba will receive a "balloon payment" on November 1, as stipulated in his contract. How much, you ask? Alright, you may want to sit down before we tell. OK, ready? Are you sure? Here it goes...

$24,363,044.  

According to the LA Times, there is a maximum of 80 percent that an NBA player can receive in advance and Kobe's lump sum haul is right at that mark. The remaining $6.1 million of his $30,453,805 salary will be paid to Vino over the course of the year.

So, if there was one day to seek out Bryant, ask him for money and hope for the best, tomorrow is definitely the day.
