VIDEO: Kobe makes Lakers Larry Nance Jr. give up seat on bench, rookie sits on floor



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.
