Apparently April Fool's doesn't only happen in April. Kobe Bryant, one of the NBA's most gifted and horniest players, requested to be traded last week. He was just joking.
"Hey, what's up. I just wanna say, about the trade thing, I'm kidding. I love L.A. This town is pimpin', it's my home. Jokes on you!" said Bryant, during an interview on an L.A. radio sports station.
The city of Los Angeles did not find Bryant's prank funny at all. Schwarzenegger threatened to resign. Jack Nicholson even expressed sadness by selling his seasons tickets. Unfortunately, the excitement of the Anaheim Ducks' Stanley Cup victory didn't seem to lighten the mood.
