Team Defense

By  | 

NBA superstar Kobe Bryant has four other teammates on the courts.
But he needed at least 60 "teammates" in court for his rape trial.

Among the members of Bryant's defense entourage: 11 forensics experts, 18 pollsters, 6 investigators, a 7-member flight crew, and 9 lawyers.

Estimates made by late April show the Laker guard had already spent two million dollars for the case. He was expected to shell out about 10 million if the case had gone to trial.

In contrast, the prosecution team was made up of about 25 members and had costs between $300 and $400 thousand.
