Kobe is basketball years is old and frankly most guys in their mid-30s look like this, just part of life’s ugly beer belly cycle.
I am sure by the time training camp rolls around he will be in much better shape. He has plenty of time, it is the off-season, so if he wants to look like Boris Diaw or a mini Carmelo Anthony that is fine. Same thing happened to Ric Flair and he is still one of the greatest Wrestlers ever.

I had a photoshop expert take a look at the photo and they believe it may have been altered to make it appear worse than it really is (Jordan fan maybe?). Can’t say for sure, but funny nevertheless.
