SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Retired Lakers star Kobe Bryant posed for photos at the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Trials ahead of watching Gabby Douglas and other American stars try to secure their spots for the Rio Olympics.

“I’ll break my neck if I try anything out here,” he said while being introduced to the crowd during a break in the action.

His guide for the night at San Jose’s SAP Center? None other than Nadia Comaneci.

“Just hanging out with Nadia and checking out some gymnastics,” Bryant said.
