Kobe Bryant's homophobic outburst and sideline tantrum is being reviewed by NBA honchos ... TMZ has learned.
Our NBA sources say league execs are taking a closer look at last night's game footage -- where Kobe is seen mouthing what looks very much like, "F**king fa**ot."
It's unclear what kind of punishment the league could bring down on Kobe ... but suspension or a fine is a dangerous possibility with the playoffs about to start.
UPDATE: TMZ has learned GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination) has also contacted the Lakers organization regarding the incident.
