Remember when Kobe Bryant broke down Jayson Tatum's game in his ESPN+ show, "The Detail," and Tatum watched it 25 times?

"That was really cool for me. Growing up, (Bryant) was my favorite player. That was really a special moment for me,” Tatum said at the time. "I've probably watched like 25 times already. It's very helpful information that I can take with me.”

Getting a workout in with Bryant is even cooler. Tatum and the Mamba took their budding bromance to the next level Thursday, and Tatum posted photos of their workout on his Instagram.

Even before Bryant analyzed Tatum, you could tell the Celtics' Rookie of the Year finalist emulated his style. 

Just another sign of big things to come for Tatum next season.
