Kobe Bryant invited to WSOP

Many online poker players yesterday heard that Kobe Bryant has been invited to play at WSOP (World Series of Poker) in tribute to the late Lakers Owner, Jerry Buss, who sadly passed away on February 18th, 2013.

Posting on Twitter on June 10th, WSOP (@wsop) said:

“Poker misses Dr. Buss. Game. Class. We invite @kobebryant to play in tribute. #sharksvsmamba” – although, sadly, Kobe Bryant then took to Twitter to reply to the request saying ” @wsop Thanks for the invite, means a lot. Doc says no go. I’ll be there in spirit, no bluff. Dr. Buss, best owner ever.”
