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.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
