One of the Mamba’s best tweets ever.

In possibly the most clutch play of Kobe Bryant’s career, the former Los Angeles Lakers superstar saved a student from having to take his final exam by quote tweeting him. Yes, it’s 2017 and that’s an actual thing that happened. Twitter is the best app ever invented:

According to Forbes, Bryant has made an estimated $680 million over his career without a college degree, so if anyone can understand how annoying and unnecessary finals can often feel, it’s him. It was nice of Bryant to pass along his ability to avoid them to this Twitter user.

No word on if the kid yelled “Kobe!” while fading away as he tossed his crumpled up exam in the trash can from across the room, but that would be the most fitting end to this whole saga. More updates on this critical and developing story as it happens.
