Who knew that Kobe Bryant and Jimmy Fallon have some history.

On Wednesday's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," the 17-time All-Star brought up the first time the two crossed paths. Back in 1996, Bryant and Fallon met at a party in Los Angeles and were asked to make a beer run when alcohol ran dry. They hopped in the stars' Land Cruiser and hit Sunset Boulevard in pursuit of some cold beverages.
