Kobe has been learning how to play the piano in addition to his basketball career. He sees it as a stress reliever and tweeted himself playing Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata last January.

With Kobe still awaiting evaluation on his injured knee, the five-time champion remains sidelined. It has to be frustrating for Kobe to see the Lakers struggle this season and knowing there is nothing he can do while is hurt.
