When you think of basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, fashion editorials may be the last thing that come to mind. The Kobe Bryant 'White Hot' spread, however, revealed by the Los Angeles Times Magazine with the help of photographer Ruven Afanador and stylist James Valeri, has brought new light to the basketballer.

Decked out in all-white minimalist clothing, including of-the-moment brands like Rick Owens and Ann Demeulemeester, the Kobe Bryant 'White Hot' shoot shows off Bryant's softer side. Soft maybe, but his fashionable entrance to the cover shoot, by chopper no less, was a little less understated. Stats for Chaste B-Ball Star Shoots Trending: Older & Average
