Is Kobe Bryant fat now? (photo)

Jul 3, 2014, 1:28 PM EDT

In October, Kobe Bryant joked (?) he was too fat.

Since, he’s played just six games as he’s been sidelined due to injury. His next game won’t come for another few months.

There’s definitely been opportunity for him to gain weight.

A couple pictures make seem as if he has.


I wouldn’t overreact to this.

Photos can be misleading. Another one taken a moment later could reveal a different story. The shadow from the life jacket could definitely play tricks.

This picture also could have been altered – I don’t know the original source.

Besides, even if Kobe is fat now, he’s one of the NBA’s most-dedicated players. I fully expect him to be in shape – as in shape as an injured 35-year-old can be – when the season begins months from now.

    Kobe is a gym rat. Kobe to busy rehabbing to be fat. Those are photo shop of Shaq in his best days. Kobe has never been fat and wouldn’t start now.
