One of the world's most famous athletes is giving some pointers to one of music's biggest stars as Kobe Bryant recently let Kanye West join him for a shootaround at a gym in California.

Open Gym Premier tweeted out a photo of Kobe along with Kanye and some other workout partners on Tuesday, and TMZ Sports is reporting that the Black Mamba is giving Yeezy some tips to help him get a leg up in pick-up games.

The always fashion forward West stuck with a camo long sleeve thermal shirt and a half scowl while the rest of the crew sported more traditional basketball attire and smiles.

Hopefully the next part of this friendship is not a return to the recording studio for Kobe.
