Kobe Bryant posts cryptic Instagram picture; could it be his return date?


Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant seems to have quite a fun time on social media, especially when it comes to posting pictures.

If you’ll recall, Bryant, a few weeks ago posted a cryptic picture of numbers which eventually proved to be a shot at ESPN, who ranked him as the #25 player in the NBA. Now Bryant is at it again, though, there are even less clues with his most recent photo – a picture of nothing. Literally, nothing.

Bryant posted a picture of a black square with the hashtag’s #blackout #bearhunting.

Not much to go off, right?

Well – maybe not. If you happen to look at the Lakers schedule, you see they have a home game on November 15th, which just so happens to be the date the team will unveil their black ‘Hollywood Nights’ jersey and fans are encouraged to wear black, creating a ‘blackout’, if you will.

And who is on the schedule that night for the Lakers? None other than the Memphis Grizzlies – you know, #bearhunting.

Of course, it could be Bryant simply toying with us yet again but there are some clues that add up here if you look hard enough.
