Paparazzi recently sniped a photo of Kobe Bryant living his best retired life, hanging out by a pool with his dad-bod on full display.

The 38-year old legend has certainly earned the right to stuff his face with ho-hos, double cheeseburgers, and whatever else he pleases after spending most of his life training to keep his body in tiptop condition.

Kobe, ever the competitor, shared the photo on his instagram account with a caption that read in part, "Gimme 30 days #Challengeaccepted #mambathick"

Check out the since-deleted post below and keep a watch on his IG account to see if he comes back looking like a rejuvenated #8 Kobe in a month.
