“Don’t try to get at me..imma be vibin all day,” he wrote in the caption of his post.

He also hopes that people would stop complaining about his weight from then on.

“By the way, while I appreciate the concern, people can stop telling me to lose weight now? #kobeyear”

This comes ahead of the Spider-Man 3 production which is set to begin very soon. It’s unknown if his transformation had anything to do with the movie, but he’s definitely looking great!
