TMZ spoke with a rep for the Lambda League -- who tells TMZ, "We have seen Kobe's apology and hope that it's sincere.  If he really wants to show us he means it he'll come to our next league game."

And get this -- Lambda reps tell us if Kobe takes them up on the offer ... they'll comp his tickets.

I would love to see the person who came up with idea. And whoever else agreed with it. First they are only doing this to get Media Coverage. So stop playing Shut and stop acting like we were victims. Besides Who Gives A F! if he likes us or not. And I don't feel sorry for his stupid ass. He is getting what he deserve. Not for saying it but because he bowed down and said it's a hatefull word to use. You didn't use it towards gay people! I think I am going to go back in the closet because I am starting to feel embaressed that I am gay because everyone is acting like little bitches...Opps sorry I might have offended the dog community on that one.

What's worse than having to pay 100k for saying a word? Having to go to this stupid basketball game. I thought the blackmail stopped once you paid the money.

Geez, the gays are tantrum throwers anyway. Drama always. Just ignore them Kobe since I already know you're an idiot.

There's more midgets in the world than gay people, but you don't see midgets getting upset when you call them midgets. I'd rather see midgets play basketball any day!

I think Kobe's idea of "balling" is different than LAMBADAs.

He better be careful.

I Think people are making a big thing out of nothing, he didn't even need to apologize. I am gay and i took no offence to what he said. He didn't say it to me. Everyone says things when there pissed off. Even the gayiest of gayiest people say things. So Really people get a life and leave Kobe alone he's only human.
