Slime time for Kobe at Kids’ Sports Choice Awards

12:35 AM ET

Not even Kobe Bryant is immune from slime.

At the Kids’ Choice Sports Awards on Thursday, the recently retired Lakers star received the Legend Award. And just as he finished his speech accepting the award, he got doused in slime — gold slime.

The Black Mamba shrugged off the dousing amid chants and cheers in support of his career.

Even J.R. Smith, who was in attendance at the show with his daughters, chimed in.

@kobebryant I don’t know if you’ll ever truly get the love you deserve but I love an appreciate who you are as a person as well as a player! An for that I Thank You! Greatest Laker Ever!!
