Philadelphia-area native Kobe Bryant showed his support for Micheal Vick last night as he rocked the Philly Eagles QB’s #7 jersey after the Lakers game in NYC.
According to the BlackSportsOnline, a few days earlier, Kobe sent Michael Vick an autographed Lakers jersey that the Eagles quarterback prominently displayed on the chair at his locker stall on Friday.
The Bryant Lakers jersey was signed, “To Mike Be Epic! Kobe 24.”
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was also given a Bryant jersey by the former Lower Merion High basketball star.
As you know, the Eagles lost to the Packers last night in the first round of the playoffs. That means it’ll Green Bay vs. Atlanta at the dome next week. We would have preferred the Eagles… but such is life!
Several celebs were spotted courtside at last night’s Knicks/Lakers game, including Ciara (and her HAWT furry Louboutins), Denzel Washington, Spike Lee (of course), Dr. Dre, Lindsey Lohan and more.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Micahel Vick just got the best endorsement ever!
Vick, who was once named “The Most Disliked Person in Sports” has been slowly gaining support during his road to redemption, but now he’s getting it from the leader of the free world, President Barack Obama!
The Prez made a phone call recently that basically seals the deal on Vick’s comeback.

It’s so great to witness the comeback of quarterback Michael Vick! And please believe… that while he may still be on some people’s “most hated” list, he’s still tops amongst many of his NFL peers.
Just moments after Philly’s win last night against the Dallas Cowboys, one Dallas player was caught on tape asking Vick for his autograph… Continue Reading…
After sitting out the last two games, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick may have just lost his starting job to the guy’s job he took after one week in the NFL season, Kevin Kolb.
Vick suffered a rib cartilage injury against the Washington Redskins, which forced Kolb to finish that game and start the next two games against the San Francisco49ers and the NFC South leading Atlanta Falcons.
Kolb has been great since taking over Vick with a 253 yard, one touchdown performance against the 49ers and a very impressive 326 yard, three touchdown performance this Sunday against the Falcons.
Now, the question in Philadelphia is, do we have another quarterback controversy?
Eagles head coach Andy Reid has made his commitment to Vick before these two performances by Kolb, but will it be enough to keep Kolb as the starter for the Eagles? (source)
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has officially been ruled out for Sunday’s game in San Francisco, meaning Kevin Kolb will get the start in his place.
Vick suffered cartilage damage in addition to a small fracture in his rib area in last Sunday’s loss to Washington.
The injury took place while he was scrambling toward the goal line late in the first quarter and got sandwiched between two defenders…. (source)
