Kobe Bryant loses in Pop a Shot on Jimmy Kimmel Live

June 12, 2010 |  8:33 am

It doesn't happen too often where Kobe Bryant makes every single field-goal attempt, yet still loses. But that's what happened when he squared off against Ricardo the Busboy in Pop a Shot on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Deep down under Bryant's playful exterior, you could actually see him wondering how it was possible for Ricardo to fire every shot one-handed with minimal time release.

Ricardo's release was so fast that he actually managed to surpass Bryant's career-high 81 points he dropped four years ago against Toronto. Bryant shouldn't feel so bad, though, knowing that he's in the same company as LeBron James and Charles Barkley, both whom were also humbled by Ricardo the Busboy.
