Kobe Bryant did a photo shoot for Slam Magazine and the mag's staff were smart enough to shoot behind-the-scenes footage. As they set up, someone reaches into a box and hands Kobe a snake. Mr. 81 Points plays along nicely, but that doesn't mean he likes it; the volume is a little rough, but we're pretty sure he asks for a fresh pair of boxers.
