“He was talking a lot of trash,” Mathew says … joking that Kobe was trying to show out to impress all of the beautiful women on the set that day.

But, Knowles says he’s a former basketball player himself — played at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga — and shocked Kobe with his hoop skills.

The best part … Mathew says he’s still in shape, still got skills and would WRECK Kobe if Mamba wanted a rematch.

“I told you I can play some ball! 20 years later, I could still take Kobe to the hoop!”

“Kobe, I just want to let you know bruh, I think you are one of the greatest — if not the greatest basketball player ever.”

“It was a privilege to kick your ass and I’ll do it again.”

Kobe might actually take Knowles up on his offer just to dunk on him.
