Kobe Bryant is one smart dude.
After scoring 60 points in a final farewell for the ages Wednesday night, the Black Mamba thanked his fans one last time before saying the words "Mamba out" right on the Staples Center court.
Well, it turns out that those words were strategically spoken.
Moments after Kobe echoed the statement, ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell spotted that Bryant's website was already selling "Mamba Out" T-shirts for $25 a pop. Kobe's a genius out here, for real. Nothing like taking advantage of fans caught up in a feeling...especially after he scored 60 points.
You just know there's going to be a fever for these shirts.
Kobe — you're too real for this one!
