The Tonight Show is in Los Angeles for the week and Kobe Bryant decided to stop by because he doesn’t have anything better to do at this point.
Jimmy Fallon talked to Kobe for the first time since the two met in 1996. At that time, both Fallon and Bryant were living in L.A. trying to make it in their young careers. The two met at a party and offered to make a beer run after they ran out of alcohol. Watch it below:
What a great story. Back in ’96, Kobe was just a rookie sitting on the bench and Jimmy was a young comedian that laughed at his own jokes. Now Kobe has five rings and Jimmy is still a comedian that laughs at his own jokes.
