(KTVI) – Few things are considered better when aged other than fine wine or richly distilled beverages. So it’s only right that Lakers’ Guard Kobe Bryant, who grew up in Italy, may be digging a nicknamed inspired by an Italian spirit.
Bryant, 34, is currently doing better in 9 of 13 statistical categories compared to his career averages listed on NBA.com. He is averaging 27.3 points per game, nearly two more than his career average of 25.5. Kobe’s followers on Twitter had mixed reviews of the potential “Vino” name change.
