Kanye West and Kobe Bryant were photographed together at Open Gym Premier in Anaheim, California. The Instagram post from Tuesday (September 30) does not say when it was taken, though it implies the photo was taken recently.

“Front row seats all summer long. Excited to see the Black Mamba return to the hardwood,”the post from Open Guy Premier’s Instagram account says.

Kanye is no stranger to basketball. Last month, Ye was seen getting some hoop action while in Perth, Australia before embarking on his string of shows down under. 

Black Mamba is expected to be playing his nineteenth season with the Lakers and has reportedly been training vigorously to do so. Although there has been no mention of a Kanye and Kobe music collaboration, the five-time NBA champion has rapped before, including his 1999 single “K.O.B.E.”
