Kobe Bryant Reminds Jalen Rose of 81-Point Game in Hilarious Commercial

Although Jalen Rose‘s comedy pilot, Jalen vs. Everybody, wasn’t picked up by ABC, this clip featuring Kobe Bryant is straight hilarity.

After exchanging pleasantries, Rose asks if Kobe heard about how he wants to be playing defense on Kobe’s statue.

Kobe insists he doesn’t pay attention to that stuff, and proceeds to order a vodka martini—with 81 olives. Via @JordanHeckFF:

Written by Fresh Off The Boat creator Nahnatchka Khan, the comedy follows Rose as he juggles his career with the challenges of being a single dad.

And since Jalen went there, let’s rewind to January 22, 2006 when Bryant dropped 81 points on a Raptors team featuring Rose.
