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 gameā€”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.
