Now this is what we call a smooth transition. After retiring from the NBA after 20 years in the league, Kobe Bryant is proving that he can slam more than just a ball.
The former NBA player stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and performed some slam poetry. And while the skills were seriously on point, it’s the topic of the poem that might have you surprised.
During the segment, the athlete spoke smooth words about the famous Steve Urkel, rather, Stefan Urquelle from the 90’s sitcom, Family Matters. “Transformation Urkel to Urquelle, suspenders to lapels. From nerdy Steve—got any cheese?—so puny and week. A metamorphosis from geek to fleek,” he said in a melancholy tone.
Bryant, clad in a black turtleneck, continued, “From naughty to hottie, different person same body. Using science and playing God, he became an Adonis. A charming disarmer with style and confidence. With a pull of a lever like the wave of a wand, he enters a nerd, but now he emerges Stefan.”
Aside from working on his poetry, the 38-year-old has been snuggling up to his new born, Bianka, who joined him behind the scenes.
