Kobe Bryant

Just Your Average World Cup Spectator

6/13/2014 1:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0613-kobe-bryant-01

Self-proclaimed soccer fan Kobe Bryant was spotted in the stands at the Spain vs. Netherlands World Cup match in Brazil today ... taking in the game like every other non-world famous celeb in the building.

No word on who Bryant's pulling for ... but he was sitting next to a bunch of Spain fans.  

It'll be interesting if Kobe runs into Team USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann during his time in Brazil -- since Klinsmann recently ripped the Lakers for giving Kobe a $48 million contract extension. 

“This always happens in America. Kobe Bryant, for example -- why does he get a two-year contract extension for $50 million? Because of what he is going to do in the next two years for the Lakers?"

"Of course not. Of course not. He gets it because of what he has done before. It makes no sense. Why do you pay for what has already happened?"

Maybe Kobe can tell him in person.

Wonder how many people he will try to rape in Brazil while there? Yeah, I said it.

I loathe people that get away with serious offenses when you know they did it -- Zimmerman, Casey Anthony, OJ Simpson, etc., etc.

Has he found any blonde white girls from the Netherlands to rape? That is they type of news we need to know. Who cares about quotes on athlete's pay by a poor soccer coach?

Its pretty funny how folks are still talking about the rape incident, its pretty hard to defend a girl who had more DNA in her underwear than the smithsonian and who her own friends said she attempted to set up Kobe and Eminem. She got what she wanted a little pay out and off to whore some more, his problem is he shouldnt have cheated on his wife, and since he did he should have picked a better female.
