The final game of Los Angeles Lakers icon, Kobe Bryant, did not stop short of incredible. From Magic Johnson’s pre-game opener to celebrities filling every courtside seat to Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing the national anthem to video tributes from athletes, musicians, actors and former teammates, the signs of gratitude just kept on coming.
Of course, as only Kobe would have it, with the exception of a sixth championship, Bryant had the perfect ending to an absolutely unforgettable evening. Cheers commenced when he broke 30 points, eyes got wider when he broke 40 points, jaws dropped when Bryant surpassed 50 points, and all of Los Angeles erupted when the Black Mamba dropped 60 points in his final NBA game. On top of that, Bryant willed the Lakers to a 101-96 victory over the Utah Jazz, thanks to 17 straight points in the last five minutes of regulation.
