It was one last unforgettable night from Kobe Bryant in his NBA career finale.
Kobe emptied the clip for the last time, going for 60 points on 22-of-50 shooting. The Lakers literally force fed Kobe the ball and demanded that he will them to one last victory before he left. He did so by becoming the oldest player in NBA history to score 60 points in a single game.
In the last three minutes of the game Kobe scored 15 points and made all five of his shots, plus all four of his free throws. Kobe outscored the Jazz 23-21 in the fourth quarter.
Shaq gave his reaction as Kobe walked off and hugged him.
We’ll always remember the passion and the heart, as he showed right until the end.
