We're deep into the NBA conference finals, and Kobe Bryant is starring in soccer commercials.

Retirement is clearly treating him well.

The former Los Angeles Lakers legend was featured in a Fox Sports spot for the upcoming Copa America tournament, which will come to the United States this June.

"This is no friendly," Bryant says with his trademark snarl.

Having run for 100 years, Copa is the oldest international continental competition in soccer. Sixteen teams will compete in 32 matches beginning on June 3.
