Last week, Kobe Bryant made history as the first former NBA player to win an Academy Award. The legendary athlete stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss nabbing a trophy for his short film Dear Basketball, where he revealed that he is "still tripping" over the win. "I mean what the hell," he says. Watch their chat above.

Kobe also revealed during the interview that he is the first African-American to ever win the Oscar for Best Animated Short. “How do I carry this night beyond this night? Now, there’s a greater sense of responsibility. How do I provide more opportunities for even more diverse, new voices to be heard in this industry? In the animation business, there is a serious lack of diversity," he tells Kimmel.
