In Honor of His Hall of Fame Induction, We Look Back At Kobe Bryant's Last Game

Thank you, Kobe.

Tonight, Kobe ‘Bean’ Bryant will officially be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame by his close friend and mentor Michael Jordan.

It was originally supposed to happen last year but ultimately postponed due to the unexpected rise of COVID. When reflecting upon Bryant’s career and the games that got him into the Hall of Fame, there are tons of moments that stand out such as his 81 point effort against the Toronto Raptors in 2006, or perhaps his many clutch game winners and buzzer beaters that he hit throughout the years. While the topic of Kobe’s greatest game is a matter of opinion, many can agree that his 60 point performance in the last game of his career just might be the most impactful.

Saturday will be a bittersweet emotional day. Kobe should be here to accept this honor, but he didn’t work as hard as he did for 20 years for us to spend an important day like this sad. He would have wanted us to push through and celebrate because that is what "Mamba Mentality" is all about.

Kobe, Thank You!
