It's always a hot ticket when Kobe Bryant and the Lakers come to take on the Sixers at the Wells Fargo Center. Whether he chose to cut ties to his roots here in Philadelphia or not back in the early 2000s, his return every season is greeted with much anticipation and mixed reactions.
In recent years, fans would fill up the arena when Kobe came to town to see one of the best to ever play the game. In 2012, 76ers fans are coming in droves to watch one of the hottest teams in the NBA give every single ball club that comes into their house an absolute run for their money.
Regardless of the reaction Kobe gets from the fans, the Sixers know they'll have their hands full with the Lower Merion High School product. [video below]
Many of you heading down to the game? What kind of greeting to you plan to give Kobe this evening?
We might also add that one Jason Kapono will be back in the house tonight as a member of the Lakers. Will his "Kings" be in attendance?
