Last night, on Kobe’s farewell tour as he plays his last season in the NBA, the Lakers suffered a tough 118-115 loss to the Sacramento Kings.
We saw flashes of a vintage Kobe Bryant and as well as what may be a sign to come with D’Angelo Russell taking over the game for the Lakers and bringing them all the way back into contention. Russell finished with 27 points on 29 minutes of play.
So in honor of #FlashbackFriday, we take a look at what Kobe brought to the court every time he arrived in Sacramento.
Some of the best Kobe plays are in this video. As you can remember, Kobe and the Lakers went on to sweep the Kings in the 2001 Western Conference Semi-Finals on their way to a second straight of what would be three straight NBA titles. Kobe finished with 36 pts in Game 3 and an astonishing 48 pts in Game 4.
We are going to miss you Kobe!
