Kobe Bryant the Brunt of Jimmy Kimmel Joke

Kobe Bryant visited Jimmy Kimmel this week and something that has never happened -- happened.

Someone made fun of the Black Mamba -- to his face.

Talking about Dennis Rodman's recent galavant to North Korea, Kimmel asked the L.A. Laker if he has gotten any "overtures from Kim Jong Un? Him being a big NBA fan, I would imagine he's a fan of yours too."

In which Bryant replied that he had not, and if he would, he would "probably pass."

Perfect lead in for Kimmel: "You would pass on that one."

Bryant: "I would probably pass."

Kimmel: "Oh, for once you're passing."

Bryant was a good sport and laughed it off.
