It seems Kobe Bryant has been having a wandering eye according to his wife who has filed for divorced. Vanessa Bryant stated irreconcilable differences for the reason for asking for a divorce. In the filing, Vanessa Bryant asked for joint legal and physical custody of the couple's two daughters, Natalia, 8, and Gianna, 5. Kobe Bryant asked for the same in his response. Vanessa Bryant also requested spousal support.
Now for Kobe Bryant this cannot be good news or something that he really wanted to deal with right now. With the NBA season starting this is a distraction he did not need. Could this divorce filing hurt his season or help it. Knowing Kobe Bryant it will have him more focused on what he needs to get done. This means bad news for NBA teams in my opinion. When Kobe Bryant is mad, upset, or focused he plays better than he usually does. The divorced could also bring his game down, but knowing Kobe the opposite will happen. This means bad news for NBA teams.
