Kobe Bryant wore a black mask, looked like a crime fighter

Last Wednesday, Kobe Bryant dealt with the broken nose he suffered in the All-Star Game by wearing a transparent protective mask. Lots of players have donned similar pieces in the past, but none have been quite so funny as this one, mostly because Kobe takes himself incredibly seriously on the court.
