Last night, late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon ended his Monday night show with a tribute to fallen NBA star Kobe Bryant and the funny man touched his entire emotional spectrum telling a hilarious story of he and Bryant going to the store for a beer run when they first met at the beginning of both of their careers.

The comedian took the last segment of The Jimmy Fallon Show to dedicate to his friend, in which he said the bond became stronger when they both had daughters.

“The world was heartbroken yesterday by a helicopter accident in Los Angeles that claimed the lives of nine people, including that of Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna,” Jimmy Fallon emotionally said on his show.
