Kobe Bryant awkwardly denies fan a hug after game in Memphis

As Kobe Bryant’s days in the NBA come to an end, he must be exhausted. When the Farewell tour hit Memphis on Wednesday Bryant found himself in a huge predicament. After walking off the court and receiving a standing ovation from the crowd he walked over to his bench where he individually high-fived every one sitting. When he reached the end of his bench and went to sit, he was faced with a woman who was overly eager to get a hug from the NBA Star.

Did he hug the fan? Of course not. The Black Mamba gracefully curved the fan and proceeded to slither into his seat.

The funniest part of the night, however, was when the fan later tried to get a selfie. It almost hurts to watch.
