Kobe Bryant has taken his love of piano to a whole new level.
The Los Angeles Lakers superstar, who has been sidelined for most of the 2013-2014 season with injuries, has dropped hints before about his love for piano. He's said sitting down at the keyboard and playing Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" has helped him relieve stress.
Bryant's had no shortage of stress this year -- he came back from a torn Achilles only to fracture his knee, all the while his team has been struggling mightily without him. And in these dark days for Bryant, it seems like the 35-year-old may be getting some help in the form of music.
Bryant recently unveiled a new piano shaped like his logo and with the words "Kobe Piano" inscribed on the front.
