Kobe Bryant roasts Jalen Rose over 81-point game in new commercial

Kobe Bryant roasts Jalen Rose over 81-point game in new commercial

In the commercial, Bryant once again played off his ruthless aggression on the court by pointing out his 81-point game against Rose and the Toronto Raptors back in January 2006.

In a new commercial for ESPN, Jalen Rose runs into Bryant at a restaurant.

In an unusual move, the sports-centric cable network will air ABC's passed-over pilot Jalen vs. Everybody, starring ESPN analyst and former pro hoopster Jalen Rose, on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. ET, according to The Hollywood Reporter. On cue, a server arrives and asks Bryant if he'd like a drink.

Mallya, who sneaked out of India last March and is reportedly living in London, is wanted by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). India has been pushing for Mallya's extradition, with even the Prime Minister's Office getting involved.

Kobe Bryant has softened his edge a little bit now that he's not competing on the hardwood night after night, and he's trying his hand at all sorts of things in retirement. The stand-off ends when Bryant says, "Nah, I'm just playing".

In recent years with Rose becoming a media personality, the jokes regarding Bryant scoring 81 points on Rose have increased in volume and creativity. It was the most points ever scored in an National Basketball Association game by someone not named Wilt Chamberlain. Although Bryant has accomplished numerous feats, and won a great amount of awards during his career, his 81-point performance is arguably his greatest.

Bryant replies, "81." He then has an awkward stare down with the future Hall of Famer.
