Kobe Bryant was incredible during the last NBA game of his career in Wednesday's 101-96 win over the Jazz, scoring 60 points (22-of-50 FGs, 10-of-12 FTs) with four boards, four assists, one steal, one block and six 3-pointers.
The Scoop: You couldn't write a better ending to the Black Mamba's career. This was the most points scored by an NBA player this season, beating out Anthony Davis (59) and DeMarcus Cousins and this was also Bryant's sixth 60-point game of his career. He finished in third place on the all-time scoring list with 33,643 points, trailing only Karl Malone (36,928) and Wilt Chamberlain (38,387). Bryant will go down as one of the greatest competitors in all of sports and as one of the all-time greats in the NBA.
