Just a year into his retirement, basketball superstar Kobe Bryant showed up to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to promote his new movie “Dear Basketball”.
But leave it to Fallon to convince Bryant to put on a turtleneck and read some slam poetry about Steve Urkle under a single spotlight.
“So puny and weak and metamorphosis from geek to fleek,” read the 38-year-old athlete.
Watch Bryant perform the entire poem above.
Things got even goofier when Sports Illustrated for Kids reporter Max Bonesetter showed up to conduct a hard-hitting interview with the legendary player.
It included a new rendition of “How Far I’ll Go” from the Disney film “Moana” and a confession of Shaquille O’Neal visiting Bryant’s nightmares with Fallon.
