Ha! Being a 2nd generation Angelino, it would be sacrilege for me to complain about Kobe, personal opinions aside.
I once stalked Phil Jackson in a strip mall parking lot for his autograph for my boyfriend at the time. It was the only autograph I’ve ever asked for and trust me I’ve met some major luminaries growing up in Los Angeles including Dean Martin and Mel Blanc, who was the absolute sweetest man and happily did a Porky Pig rendition for me upon request.
Despite Jackson’s Zen mojo, he wasn’t pleased, (in his defense he was carrying his dry cleaning and food to go), but did reluctantly relinquish said autograph for my ex-boyfriend who promptly lost it.
