The internet was ablaze yesterday when NBA superstar Kobe Bryant was photographed sitting with Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice during an Olympic event. The duo have a friendship dating back to the 2008 games in China. Many tabloid websites are speculating that the two are involved in an affair, you know, because that's what tabloid websites do.
Fellow Australian Elizabeth Cambage of the WNBA Tulsa Shock had some disparaging things to say about the situation.

The golden girl swimmer and the NBA superstar set tongues wagging and sent Twitter into meltdown when they were photographed sitting together, giggling and cheering as Anna Meares clinched gold in the women's sprint final from Victoria Pendleton. .... Having first met Bryant at a party in Beijing four years ago, Rice renewed acquaintances when they bumped into each other at a pre-games camp in Manchester. .... When Australian NBA superstar Andrew Bogut asked if Cambage had anyone in mind, Cambage replied: "Just said what everyone else is thinking."
