When it comes to passing a class, there isn't anything much more stressful than having to take a final exam at the end of the semester.
Prior to the test, a high school senior in Indiana named William Pate took to Twitter with a long-shot request. A pair of photos that accompanied the tweet showed Pate's teacher shaking on the deal.
With 11.5 million Twitter followers, Bryant receives hundreds of mentions each day -- many of which probably never get read by the future Hall of Famer.
But Thursday was different. The Black Mamba seemingly slithered up out of nowhere and responded to Pate with a retweet and message.
Hope you have an A in this class https://t.co/ABKeJSHPZc— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) May 18, 2017

Although Bryant was never known for passing, he really came through with a nice assist on this one.
