Kobe Bryant a basketball legend and Lakers star played his last game putting on a performance of a lifetime in his career which has spanned over 20 years playing in the NBA.
Playing the last game of his 20-year career, Kobe put on a show for a sold-out Staples Center crowd one final time, pouring in a season-high 60 points and steering his team to a win.
Bryant spoke about growing up a “die-hard Laker fan” and the trade that led to him spending 20 years with the organization and winning five NBA championships.
“You can’t write something better than this,” he said.
Wednesday’s win wrapped up the Lakers’ worst season in franchise history at 17-65, but Bryant said he took pride in the down years “because we didn’t run. We played through all that stuff, and we got our championships, and we did it the right way.”
