Los Angeles Lakers fans might want to divert their eyes!
It's been a busy offseason for Kobe Bryant who has been on the long road to recovery from his season-ending achilles injury!
The basketball superstar has done everything in his power to make sure he's back on the court soon, and apparently traditional medicine just wasn't doing it for him. So he decided to test the mystical healing powers of lions instead!!
Ok, so Kobe was actually in El Lay shooting a commercial for Turkish Airlines, and we're not sure how the lion ties in here, but seeing just wasn't good enough for the sharpshooter as he decided to put his hand right up against the cage!
And not just any hand. It was his SHOOTING hand!
This doesn't seem like a very good idea for someone who makes a living throwing an orange ball into a hoop, but he's the expert here! We guess we'll just have to trust that he knows what he's doing!
Be careful, Kobe! The Lakers need you! And preferably with both hands still attached.
