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

We can’t say we’re totally surprised.
Kobe Bryant has been getting giant contracts for over a decade, so it makes complete sense that he’s rich!
The Los Angeles Lakers guard has the NBA's highest net worth at $220 million thanks to monster paydays and endorsements from companies like Coca-Cola, Mercedes-Benz and Turkish Airlines.

In case you didn’t know, Kobe Bryant is the new celebrity face of Turkish Airlines, and not everyone is happy about it. Specifically, famed lawyer Mark Geragos (calls himself a “100% Armenian dude”) has denounced Kobe’s decision.
Many scholars argue that starting in 1915, Turks committed genocide and massacred millions of Armenians, and Geragos is saying that Kobe should back out due to those atrocities.
"Kobe, as a suite holder, life long Laker fan and 100% Armenian dude, what were you thinking? Kobe must be smoking something
Kobe should take their money and proclaim it was a Genocide. Kobe should also encourage Congress to vote on House Resolution 252 tomorrow declaring it a Genocide.”
Wowsa! Your move, Mr. Bryant.
