Kobe Bryant’s Last Game Brings Out The Stars And Breaks The Internet


Last night was easily one of the greatest nights in NBA history. The Golden State Warriors played for their mind-boggling and record-setting 73rd win of the season, while Kobe Bryant stepped on an NBA court for the final time. You knew you were going to get a show, but no one really knew how incredible it would all be.

Somehow, the Warriors 73rd win and Steph Curry exploding for 46 points took the passenger seat to the Black Mamba. The Staples Center was full of celebrities and fans (who all have way too much money to spend) eager to see what Kobe would do in his final NBA game.

Kanye, Jay Z, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q, David and Brooklyn Beckham, The Weeknd and Bella Hadid, Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo, Shaq, Lamar Odom, Zendaya, Josh Hutcherson, Ashley Benson, Jeremy Piven, Brian Austin Green and of course Jack Nicholson were all in attendance to see Kobe put on a show. And he did not disappoint.


In true Kobe fashion, he went absolutely berserk (something Raptors fans are all too familiar with). And in true Internet fashion, everyone lost their bloody minds. You rarely get to see celebrities acting like fans, but that’s exactly what most of them were for Kobe’s final game. Yesterday really was #MambaDay.

Five-time NBA Champion, twice as the Finals MVP. He was the 2008 NBA MVP, two-time scoring champion and an 18-time All-Star. To go along with his countless NBA records, Kobe is the third-highest scorer in NBA history and holds the record for most seasons played for a single franchise. Twenty years after he scored his first point as a Los Angeles Laker, he scored his last, both coming from the free throw line. After a 20-year journey, Bryant only had one last thing to say before he dropped the mic on his own NBA career.
