Yes, you read that right.
Worlds have collided, we are genuinely confused how this came to be.
Apparently LA Lakers general manager, Rob Pelinka, has been telling this story about how Kobe Bryant was so inspired by Heath Ledger’s performance in The Dark Knight he had dinner with him to “pick his brain.”
Turns out, though, the only “Joker” here is Pelinka because that story actually never happened and a simple look at the timeline of 2008 and a witness who said it never happened proves, it never happened.
What a stupid thing to lie about, what do you even get out of a story like that!? He even lied to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson about it!
There's video of Pelinka telling the Kobe-Ledger story. How come someone blatantly lie like that? pic.twitter.com/hsh1u8wwp7
