Bryant scored 60-points in his final NBA game Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz claiming a stunning victory with a 101-96 score!
After claiming victory the Los Angeles Lakers player gave us an phenomenal speech:
Man, I can’t believe how fast 20 years went by, this is crazy,” Bryant said after the victory in an address to the crowd.
“To be standing on center court with you guys, my team-mates behind me, appreciating all this, the journey we’ve been on.
“I grew up a die-hard Laker fan — I mean a die-hard Laker fan — so to be drafted and traded here and spend 20 years here, you can’t write something better than this.
“No words can describe how I feel about you guys, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. What can I say? Mamba out.”
Bryant pumped a 3-pointer with 59 seconds left in the game. He hit another with 31 seconds to putting the Lakers ahead 97-96. He finished with an assist before checking out for good with 4.1 seconds left in just the Lakers’ 17th win of the worst season in history. WHAT A WAY TO GO OUT!!
