If NBATV’s Tuesday Fan Night matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks taught us anything, it’s this: If you’re a rookie you relinquish your seat on the bench for Kobe Bryant, even if you’re nursing an ailing knee. 

Bryant, who sat out Tuesday night’s contest with a sore shoulder, joined the team on the bench a little more than midway through the first quarter, and much to his surprise there wasn’t a vacant seat on the pine. He then gestured to youngster Larry Nance Jr. to give up his seat, to which he obliged.

When a five-time champion and the face of the franchise makes such a request, you follow suit. As my man Martin Soaries said on Twitter, seniority. The perks of being Kobe Bryant.
