Kobe Bryant petting a lion for Turkish Airline commercial

NBA contracts often have a long list of items that they don’t want their players doing unless they want their contract voided.  The most common bullet is don’t ride a motorcycle and although I’m sure Bryant’s contract with the Lakers doesn’t say don’t mess with Lions, i’m sure they don’t want Kobe Bryant putting his shooting hand near a lion even if he is behind a fence.  Then again we are talking about the Black Mamba that tells Bears they need to protect their neck if they get into a fight with him.

The pic is from a commercial shoot for Turkish Airlines.  Let’s just hope he doesn’t get hurt or Lakers fans will be as upset as Armenian Americans about Kobe’s endorsement deal.
