Kobe Bryant doesn’t do LA traffic, takes flight home from practice instead

Why even mess with traffic when you can just fly home, like Kobe Bryant?

Traffic in Los Angeles is always a notorious beast. 

But braving the 405 on a Friday afternoon? A fate worse than death. 

Though it turns out Kobe Bryant doesn’t have to immerse himself into the clogged arteries of the Southern California freeway system like other mere mortals. 

Instead, the Los Angeles Lakers star takes the path of angels on his commute home and flies home from practice, as seen in this Instagram post, which he captioned "In 18 years this has been the most challenging camp by far!!": 

So much better than the carpool lane. Why even mess with the snarls of traffic when you can just fly above it all? 

Must be nice, that view from the top.
