Another Reason the Media Is Dying

From Rick Reilly‘s column about spending a day with Kobe Bryant:

“Nearly $140 into a cab ride from my place, a security gate opens at the end of a very swank cul de sac to reveal Kobe Bryant, father of two, standing in front of seven vehicles — the Ferrari, the Range Rover, the Escalade, the Bentley Coupe, the two-door plastic Fred Flintstone car, the training-wheels bike and the tricycle smashed into a bush.”

Couldn’t a friend drop Reilly off? Or, at the very least, ESPN could have made him pay for the cab himself. The dude has enough money.
