Enjoy your retirement, Kobe. 

The former Los Angeles Lakers guard posted a shirtless photo on Instagram alluding to photos of his "dad bod" that were originally posted on TMZ. In a post he called himself #MambaThick and vowed to get into better shape.

Bryant's post didn't last long on the social media platform and was later followed by another post that appears to mean that he'll be off social media, likely for the 30 days he mentioned in the deleted post.

While the five-time champion definitely deserves to enjoy his retirement any way he chooses, it appears that Bryant has found a new way to be competitive.
