Retired Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is continuing to rack up awards more quickly off of the court than he did on the, winning an award for Outstanding Post-Produced Graphic Design at the Sports Emmys Tuesday night:

Bryant wasn’t there to accept award, but it would be the most Kobe thing ever if he skipped it just to let the other nominees how little he cared about beating them. Bryant beat out NBC’s Sunday Night Football, ESPN’s Monday Night Football and CBS’ Thursday Night Football for the accolade.
Bryant will now add a Sports Emmy to his rapidly growing trophy case, which also includes an Oscar for the film as well as his two NBA Finals MVP awards, a regular season MVP and five NBA championship rings. At the rate he’s going, it’s only a matter of time before his storytelling awards outnumber his basketball ones. Count the Emmyzzzzzzz.
