Kobe Bryant teamed up with Kanye West in an Orange County gym Wednesday for a private basketball training session ... TMZ Sports has learned.
The two met up at the Open Gym Premier training center -- running drills and played a little hoop before calling it a day.
Kobe and Kanye have been friends for years -- and even did a Nike commercial together back in 2012.
We know Yeezus likes to ball -- and recently hit the hardwood at a court in Australia.
We also know Kobe likes to rap ... if you'll recall that single he put out with Tyra Banks back in 2000.
Could another K+K collaboration be coming up??? Stay tuned ...
