Look... we get it.
With this being the 20th and final season of Kobe Bryant's legendary career, there's Kobe fever out here.
We have already seen his last final All-Star Game jersey fetch over $100,000 in an online auction.
That's crazy enough. But when the five-time NBA champion threw his shooting sleeve into the crowd during the Los Angeles Lakers-Utah Jazz game on Monday night, a fan took Kobe fever to the extreme. Real nasty extreme.
Although a guy in the row caught Bryant's sleeve first, a lady and her friend wrestled it away... only to smell the garment. We're not talking a quick sniff, either. We're talking deep inhalation, as if they're basking in Bryant's scent. Especially the woman.
See it for yourself.
Bryant only has eight more games before wrapping up his legendary career, with his last game being April 13.
Just imagine what fans will do from now until then.
This, though, was a bit much.
