'I heard of stories about Madison Square Garden, but actually being in this place... it was just amazing... I'm still shaking with excitement,' said Ranbir on his recent visit to New York's Madison Square Garden.
The Bollywood heart-throb received a warm welcome from Bryant, who gifted his sneakers to the actor after a game against the New York Knicks Jan 22, said a press release.
Even Nate Robinson, the 2009 Sprite Slam Dunk contest winner, gifted Ranbir his autographed jersey.
Ranbir's experience of his visit will be aired on Ten Sports Feb 1 and on Zee Sports Feb 2.
