Following Saturday's All-Star festivities, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade continued their "Gentleman's Supper Club" tradition for a second consecutive year. However, this year's gathering had a special guest: Kobe Bryant. Over a fish entrée which wasn't served until after 2 a.m., as well as wine and spirits, Anthony, Paul and Wade showed their appreciation and admiration for the Black Mamba.
The trio also showered Bryant with a wide array of gifts. Anthony gave Kobe a wine from Italy where he grew up as a child called Gaja Barbaresco, adding that, like vino, he continued to get better with age. Paul prepared a retirement package which included dental adhesive, compression socks, reading glasses and a cane. Wade bought him clothes with his logo on it, as well as a one-year Netflix subscription because he's "about to have a lot of time on his hands."
At over 48,000 minutes logged in his career, Bryant's idea of Netflix and chill may actually mean binge-watching Narcos and literally chilling out on the couch for hours. Can't blame him, though. Kobe has played in the league for two decades!
