Kobe Bryant Jokes About Vetoed Chris Paul Trade With Adorable Photo (TWEET)

The "basketball reasons" behind vetoing a trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers before last season might still be on Kobe Bryant's mind.

The five-time NBA champion has been spending the All-Star break with his daughter Natalia. At some point over the weekend, Natalia was playing with the son of CP3, Chris Paul II.

As the two kids played some basketball together, Bryant joked that the league couldn't get in the way and shared an adorable photo of them to his Twitter followers.
