KOBE "MONEYBAGS" BRYANT

WHAT, ME WORRY?

Friends of Kobe Bryant are concerned about the 22-year-old superstar's hand-over-fist spending -- but he's NOT! Lately, Kobe shelled out $1.5 million for a basketball court he NEVER used in the house he just put on the market; he's bought a $13.5 million mansion and spent $300,000-plus on cars for his wife, a Ferrari, a Mercedes and a BMW! But dig THIS: Kobe's got a six-year $71 million Lakers contract -- plus endorsements for Sprite, Adidas, McDonald's, Nintendo, etc. -- that experts say will top out at $15 million a YEAR! (Don't worry, be happy, man!)
