On Friday morning, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant posted a photo of BODYARMOR, a sports drink company he has invested millions in after announcing his new company a couple months ago. Here is the five-time champion’s message regarding the situation via Instagram:

“Pro and college players should be allowed to CHOOSE what sports drink hydrates them the best and not be FORCED to drink LEAGUE SPONSORS. #AthletesChoice 2 much on the line for cramping #UpgradeYourSportsDrink @drinkbodyarmor #AthletesFirst”

Everyone will interpret this message differently, but for the five-time champion, it is a matter of preparation before and during games to give himself the best opportunity to perform at a high level every single night.
