Kobe Bryant, concert pianist? Okay, no, but the Los Angeles Lakers great did unveil a custom 'Kobe' piano on Saturday evening which just so happens to be shaped like his famed logo.

Bryant tweeted the picture to his 4.4 million followers with little description other than to suggest his 'collection of masterpieces just hit a crescendo of domination.'

The Black Mamba has been known to show off his love of music -- including piano -- as videos and photos of Bryant playing have surfaced on the web in recent years: However, as great as the piano is, it was simply a marketing ploy for 'The Kobe 9 Experience.' Bryant and the piano recently made an appearance at a Los Angeles based mall where Kobe discussed his shoe line, but unfortunately, didn't put any of his dominating, crescendo-ing musical skills on display.
