How much would you pay for a bag of air from Kobe Bryant's final game?

A bag of air taken from Kobe Bryant's final NBA game was up for grabs online for the small sum of $US15,500 ($NZ22,000).


eBay user cardemon_huskers2015 listed the item, and bidding reached upwards of $US15,000 before it was removed from the website, deflating the hopes of fans wanting to take home a piece of the atmosphere from the historical fixture.

Bryant took 50 shots and scored 60 points in his final game, leading his Los Angeles Lakers to a 101-96 victory against the Utah Jazz.

During his career he won five championships, was named an All Star 18 times and was the NBA's Most Valuable Player in 2008.
