Kobe Bryant Posts, Then Deletes, Picture Of Himself Poolside Rocking A Dad Bod

Kobe Bryant looks incredible for a 38-year-old*. *A 38-year-old who spends his days selling insurance before hopping on the elliptical for 30 minutes three times a week to escape from his nagging wife. But, after 5 NBA championships, 18 All-Star appearances and $680 million in career earnings, Mamba is welcome encouraged to take the next 38 years off.

Bryant recently posted the above Instagram photo of him looking very Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis-esque while vacationing with his family in Portofino, Italy, but deleted it soon thereafter. The original caption read:

“Objects on camera may appear larger than they do in the mirror haha ok…ok…ok. Gimme 30 days #challengeaccepted #mambathick

Bryant’s been around far too long not to know that the internet never forgets and deleting an unflattering picture only brings more attention to it. But, Mamba if you’re reading this, it’s not too late to sign up for The Jared Lorenzen Project. On the bright side, you just have to gain a minimum of 50 more pounds to be considered for the TNT panel.
