As most of you probably already know, Lakers star Kobe Bryant is returning tonight to play his first game of the NBA season and it has whipped up many Lakers fans into a frenzy.
One fan was so excited for Kobe’s return that he decided to cancel his own wedding to make sure that he wouldn’t miss the moment.
We get more from the fine folks over at HipHop365:
A San Diego couple were set to exchange wedding vows this Sunday after months of preparation until it was abruptly canceled, and they have Kobe Bryant to blame.
According to reports, 28 year old Simon Bradley, a self-described ‘obsessed’ Laker fan decided to post-pone his wedding so he can attend Kobe Bryant’s highly anticipated return to the court from a torn Achilles this Sunday at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The man promised his fiance’ Melissa they will set a future date, but we’re going to assume it will be after the season.
Clearly, Melissa is a keeper, Simon….you better not blow it in the near future.
