Kobe Bryant Meets With Yasiel Puig, Rides Helicopter to Dodgers Game (Photos)

Kobe Bryant is currently trying to rehab from a torn Achilles tendon, going through the grueling steps that come with returning from serious injury. So, you didn’t expect him to walk, did you?

The New York Yankees were in Los Angeles on Tuesday and Wednesday for a two-game set between the two former cross-town rivals. That’s the biggest team on each coast, and with the Dodgers playing well recently, it was a marquee matchup at Chavez Ravine.

Back in 2010, Bryant revealed to GQ that he often takes helicopters to Staples Center in L.A. from his home in Orange County. Well, apparently now he takes them to Dodger Stadium, too, as Bryant posted the below picture to Instagram on Wednesday.

It might not have been just the allure of a Yankees-Dodgers matchup that brought Bryant to the Stadium, however. Before the game, Bryant met with outfield phenom Yasiel Puig, who was touring the Lakers’ facilities while Bryant was there continuing to work on his rehab.

Check out a photo of the two below.
