Kobe Bryant’s 60-point final game, This Date in History. (4/13/16)
Remembering Kobe Bryant's epic 60-Point performance in his final NBA game
On April 13th, 2016, Kobe Bryant scored 60 points on 22-50 shooting in his final NBA game before retirement as the Lakers defeated the Jazz 101-96 at the Staples Center.
The word went out through the hallways at Staples Center before tipoff of his final NBA game, teammates, staff and locker room attendants all scrambling to get something in the hands of Kobe Bryant, the retiring Los Angeles, while he was holding onto a marker and in the mood.
The Black Mamba With five NBA Championships, two Finals MVPs, one regular-season MVP, and 18 All-Star appearances under his belt, there’s no way Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant would leave the game he dedicated his whole life to quietly.
He left with a kiss to Lakers fans. “Mamba out.”
