For the last time in his professional basketball career, Kobe Bryant played a NBA game. The 20-year veteran's career came to the end on Wednesday as he left to a standing ovation from Lakers fans after scoring an improbable 60 points, yes SIXTY points.
After leading the Lakers to a win, Bryant addressed the crowd and described his career by saying, "You couldn't write something better than this." He went on to say he loved the fans and thanked his family for the sacrifice. He then ended it in classic fashion with "Mamba out" before dropping the mic and leaving the court for a final time.

Bryant thinks that Gasol, who moved on to the Chicago Bulls in 2014, didn’t get his due in Los Angeles. And most of the blame for that, according to the 37-year-old swingman, goes to one of the head coaches who unsuccessfully tried to replace Phil Jackson.
“I thought it was really silly,” Bryant said of Gasol’s role. “I felt bad for him going through that stuff. That’s why I defended him so much.”

Kobe Bryant will go down in history as one of the greats. He has an insane practice regimen and won't be satisfied with his particular set of skills until he's played his last game. In an interview with the New York Times, Bryant says that inspiration can come from anywhere and he got some from a cheetah on how to shoot his signature fadeaway jumper.
"When you watch me shoot my fadeaway jumper, you’ll notice my leg is always extended," Bryant said. "I had problems making that shot in the past. It’s tough. So one day I’m watching the Discovery Channel and see a cheetah hunting. When the cheetah runs, its tail always gives it balance, even if it’s cutting a sharp angle. And that’s when I was like: My leg could be the tail, right?"

The first guard to ever be taken out of high school, Bryant was chosen as the 13th overall draft pick by the Charlotte Hornets in 1996. According to Arn Tellem, Bryant's agent at the time, Bryant playing for the Charlotte Hornets was "an impossibility".
However, Bill Branch, the Hornets' head scout at the time, said that the Hornets agreed to trade their draft selection to the Lakers before picking Bryant. The teams agreed to the trade the day before the draft and the Lakers told the Hornets whom to select five minutes before the pick was made.
Kobe Bryant became the youngest NBA starter in the NBA ever. (18 years, 158 days)
