Tonight is Kobe Bryant's final NBA game as he retires from basketball. Five NBA championships, 18 All-Star games, and countless game winning shots, the Black Mamba will be stepping away from the game in just a few hours.
He did have one big blemish in his career and that was the incident in Colorado. But, you can't take away what he did on the court though and there, he was one of the best players to ever play the game.
NBA 2K17 will be releasing a Legends Edition with Kobe on the cover next year to honor one of the top 50 greatest players of the game. The game's not going to be the same without him, but at least we'll have the cover for next year's game for one last hurrah.
