Watch Kobe Bryant Have an Epic Last Game
After all the hype and build up, Kobe Bryant's last game as a Los Angeles Laker more than lived up to expectations.
It was an emotional night as many video tributes were played for Bryant. Magic Johnson gave a speech about what Kobe meant to the Lakers. NBA superstars from the present and the past gave Bryant props for his amazing 20 years career.
And then the game started. Kobe started out ice cold. He missed his first five shots badly, but once he got the first bucket to go in, the old Black Mamba was back. Bryant lead the Lakers to a come from behind win against the Utah Jazz 101-96. And he did it by scoring 60 points while taking 50 shots.
It was apparent that Bryant was gonna take as many shots that he could. His teammates didn't even think about scoring themselves, they would always look for Kobe. In the end the Mamba took over in the 4th quarter and in a Hollywood ending, had one of the most spectacular games ever and ended his career on a high note.
