Kobe Byrant gives a sneak peek of his Ghostbusters commercial

Thursday June 2nd, 2016

Kobe Bryant has found a new career just over a month after retiring from the NBA for good. The Lakers legend is suiting up and joining the worlds premier paranormal police force, the Ghostbusters.

In a sneak peek on The Players’ Tribune, Bryant suits up in the iconic jumpsuit and proton pack while filming a commercial for the forthcoming all-female reboot of the classic action-comedy franchise, which is set to air during Thursday’s Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Honestly, Slimer would have been a decent option off the bench for Los Angeles last season.

The new Ghostbusters movie will hit theaters on July 15.
