Remember when Kobe Bryant broke his nose at the 2012 NBA All-Star Game? Of course you do. How could you forget the mask that he was forced to wear for a few weeks after it happened?!

Well, it turns out that all that might have been a result of karma. That's right, karma! Because, just a few weeks prior to KB24 breaking his nose, the Lakers guard broke Pacers center Roy Hibbert's nose during a game in late January. And, during a podcast with the NBA Hang Time blog yesterday, Hibbert talked about Kobe breaking his nose during that game—and said that Kobe showed him absolutely no sympathy the next time he saw him.

"Kobe broke my nose and I actually talked to him about this at the All-Star Game expecting a little sympathy," he said, "and I got none from Kobe."

Ouch! We've heard that Kobe is cold-blooded, but that sounds even colder than usual. Then again, he got a taste of his own medicine late in the All-Star Game. So, maybe next time time, he'll be a little more sympathetic when he busts a guy's beak.
