Kobe Bryant reveals what he would call himself if he was a woman

Kobe Bryant appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, taking part in the host's regular 'Three Ridiculous Questions' segment.

I guess when you aren't involved in the NBA postseason as an NBA legend, you have to keep on your toes in search of valuable air time.

The Los Angeles Lakers star went along with the hilarious skit in good spirits as the host asked him the hard hitting questions no sports journalist has yet dared to ask the 16-time all-star in a post-game interview.

The host kicked off by querying which name Kobe would have liked to go by, should he have been Ms. Bryant. 

Bryant gave an equally bizarre answer as he half attempted to sidestep the question:

"Growing up I had two friends. They were brother and sister, his name was 'Man' and her name was 'Woman'...I swear to you.

"you probably wouldn't go anywhere in the world and find somebody that's called 'Man' or 'Woman'," continued the five-time NBA champ.

He has a point, but Woman Bryant doesn't have quite the same ring to it as the Black Mamba.

Following a similarly ludicrous line of questioning, Kimmel then asked if Kobe could count to four in an English accent, before asking whether Bryant would "go to the bathroom in the sky" if he could fly.

The response from one of the greatest players of his generation? Two definitive yes'.

Using Harry Potter as his reference point, Bryant reeled of 1-4 with ease. He has clearly been keeping up to date with J.K. Rowling's movie blockbusters.

Perhaps the most disturbing retort came with answer number three however as Kobe had no hesitation regarding toilet etiquette for the able of flight:

"I'd go in the sky.

"Just with one dump, see how many cars you can hit cos God knows my windshield gets his all the time," Kobe told Kimmel.

As you can see it certainly wasn't your typical interview with the Lakers legend.

Away from answering ridiculous questions Kobe will be hoping he doesn't have to answer too many more on his recent injury woes in the weeks ahead as he bids to return to full fitness ahead of the 2014-15 NBA season.
