Los Angeles, California, is a town filled with celebrities. On any given night you can go to a Lakers game and see the sidelines littered with A-list actors and actresses. However, despite all of that, during his prime, the late Kobe Bryant may have been the most famous person in the city.

Kobe was known as an incredibly friendly guy off the court. But as for on the court? Not so much. His "Mamba Mentality" made him famous. His laser focus during game time couldn't be broken, and that was put on display when Chris Rock and David Spade did their best to get his attention on the Lakers bench, but to no avail.

It's as if they don't even exist. One of the biggest stars in Hollywood trying to get his attention and Kobe didn't flinch.

You know he heard them, he just wasn't interested.
