Check Out Kanye West Balling With an NBA Star

Kanye West and Kobe Bryant are just a couple veterans looking to stay on top of their game. In that spirit, they hit the court on Oct. 1 to flex their brands, pose for the camera, and maybe shoot some hoops, too.

Bryant (who dropped the ill-fated single "K.O.B.E." with Tyra Banks) and West (who wants everyone to know he loves basketball) combined forces at Los Angeles’ Open Gym Premier for the private training session pictured above.

Perhaps Kobe is gunning for a guest spot on Ye’s forthcoming album… whenever it sees the light of day.
