Is Kobe Bryant Fat Now?

A shirtless photo of Kobe Bryant has taken the internet by storm, with many body experts suggesting the Los Angeles Lakers star has gotten doughy in the offseason.

And by doughy, I mean “still in better shape than 95 percent of Americans.”

Bryant, who was in Brazil for the World Cup and recently returned from Europe to court Carmelo Anthony, doesn’t exactly seem like he has a six-pack in the picture. But we should all take caution and remember the important lesson learned from Derek Jeter Fatgate.

Sometimes pictures are just taken from the wrong angle/at the wrong time.

Knowing Bryant’s fierce competitive nature, it would be insane to think His Mambaness would ever enter a season even slightly out of shape.
