Kobe Bryant, one of the greatest to ever play in the NBA, played his last game last night. I'm hoping he pulls a Jay-Z and comes right out of retirement, but it doesn't look that way:
After last night's game, Kobe said in a post interview that he gave his heart and soul to the NBA:Last night was the final chapter to an incredible story. I walk away at peace knowing my love for the game & this city will never be broken.— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 14, 2016
"I gave everything I possibly could to the game. That's why I'm so comfortable walking away from it."
Kobe says he plans on spending more time with his family while enjoying his retirement.
Kobe retired on a high note, dropping 60 POINTS last night as he helped the Lakers close out their season with a win. He had the crowd HYPED and it was like the good ol' days. No other NBA player scored that many points in their last game.

This moment! 🙌🏽 #KobeBryant & #LamarOdom 💕 Kobe hugged it out with former #Lakers teammates and then addressed the crowd after tonight's win... He said: ".... I'm more proud of the fact that... not about the championships, but about 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." 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 #OooLaLaBlog #MambaDay #lakersnation #bloghive💄
I'll never forget the Lakers/Knicks game I attended four years ago.
Thank you, Kobe!
