Hopefully, the Black Mamba’s success last night won’t tempt him to take the baseball route like Michael Jordan famously did back in the 90s, but this is still pretty cool.

Kobe Bryant was up in Seattle, Washington for Richard Sherman’s charity softball game last night. The likes of Nate Robinson, Sherman, Macklemore, and Bryant all took part in the game, though Kobe created the biggest buzz of the night when, while batting left-handed, he hit a home run in front of the capacity crowd.

However, Bryant wasn’t ready to take all the credit for the home run.

“The only reason I hit that homer is because of [NFL player Lawyer Milloy] no doubt about it!” Bryant later wrote on his Twitter account, before adding a few obligatory hashtags in #coaching, #thankU, and our favorite of them all: #philwho.

Is there anything this guy can’t do? It seems not.
