Kobe Bryant Mask [PHOTO]

Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers is dealing with a broken nose that would generally limit the ability of most people, particularly to play a sport like basketball. It's really difficult to coordinate yourself with a broken nose, particularly when trying to play basketball.

Bryant debuted the mask tonight to play against the Minnesota Timberwolves. We'll let you judge the quality of the mask after the jump.
