The Fumble - Kobe Bryant is apparently the dad of the Los Angeles Lakers. And just as Stephen Curry will tell you, when dad wants a seat on the couch, he gets it. Bryant was injured for the Lakers' Tuesday-night loss to the Dallas Mavericks, and when he joined his team on the bench late and in a suit, there weren't any seats left. So he made one. That is, he made rookie Larry Nance Jr. get off the bench and sit on the floor.
