Sometimes we all wish that we could hop in a helicopter and fly right over traffic on the 10 or the 405. But we can't, because most of us aren't rich.

Except for those of us who are. Like Kobe Bryant. The Huffington Post reports that the Lakers star gave his teammate Steve Blake a ride to Orange County for an ultrasound after Blake suffered a strain to his abdomen during a game on Sunday, making him miss practice on Monday.

Blake won't play in tonight's game because of his injury.

Kobe uses his helicopter on the regular to avoid L.A. traffic.
