These guys are the undisputed generals of the Mamba Army.

As you might recall, they supposedly quit their jobs in order to travel around and watch Kobe Bryant’s "final games."

That's plural.

They hail from Italy, and we’ve already seen them at a Dec. 1 contest between the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers:

When Bryant’s Lakers took on the Chicago Bulls in the United Center for the final time Sunday, they were in attendance—and clearly enjoyed themselves, despite L.A.'s 126-115 loss.

Kobe put up 22 points on 8-of-20 shooting.
