Kobe Bryant shirts for sale at the Philips Arena Store
Kobe Bryant shirts for sale at the Philips Arena Store

The last three games at Philips Arena have resembled road games considering that half of the fans in attendance were wearing the opposing team's jerseys. In each of those game the Hawks have been greeted to MVP chants for Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant and for Amare Stoudemire again on Sunday. With the Lakers in town tonight and the likelihood of those recent events repeating, it appears that the franchise is at least going to try and make a little money off of the situation. Yes my friends the above picture is in fact the store at Philips Arena with a Kobe Bryant Lakers shirt front and center. I can't even find a Hawks shirt where I live yet I can goto Philips Arena and buy Lakers shirts? 

Credit goes to season ticket holder Steve Kelly who emailed me the picture.
