It's always a good idea not to poke the bear that is Kobe Bryant.
And even in retirement, the Black Mamba has remained cold-blooded—in this case, towards fellow NBA alums. Ex-basketball star Jalen Rose was Bryant's latest victim, as seen in the sneak peek of the former's comedy pilot on ESPN, Jalen vs. Everybody.
The clip shows Rose bumping into the five-time champion at a restaurant, then clearing the air about that time he joked being part of Bryant's statue.
For a while, it looked like the Los Angeles Lakers legend took the high road...until he placed a brutal order, which reminded of Bryant's career night versus a Toronto Raptors team that included Rose.
The ensuing staredown is priceless:
Seriously, Kobe needs his own show.
