Kobe left his career in style last night, scoring 60 points against the Utah Jazz. It was his 6th game with 60 or more. Before this, no player has ever ended his career with 50 points, let alone 60!It was also the most points scored by a player this season.
The Lakers won the game 101 to 96.
Celebrities at the game included Jack Nicholson, Shaq, Odom, Snoop Dogg, David Beckham, George Lopez Arsenio Hall, and of course more, but it really doesn’t matter who they are…
After the game Kobe addressed the crowd and said, “I go through 20 years of everybody screaming to pass the ball, and on the last night they’re like, ‘Don’t Pass it!'”
After the game, Kobe hit the court one last time to address the crowd. And he dropped this classic line, quote, “I go through 20 years of everybody screaming to pass the ball, and on the last night they’re like, ‘Don’t pass it!'”
Kobe walks away from the NBA with 33,643 points. That’s third of all-time. He also leaves with a 4.87-carat diamond retirement ring. Talk about going out with a bang!
