Kobe Bryant Close to Suspension


>Richardson had 34 points and 10 rebounds, Felton added 13 points and 10 assists, and the lowly Bobcats stunned the Lakers 108-95 on Wednesday night in a game where Kobe Bryant drew two technical fouls in a span of 29 seconds late in the fourth quarter and was ejected.

Bryant has 15 technicals, and one more means an automatic one-game suspension.

Usually accessible, the Lakers star left Staples Center without speaking to reporters. Coach Phil Jackson wasn’t much help, either. [USA Today]
