What a finale. To end a legendary 20-year career. Despite being completely out of the playoffs, the sports news this week was Kobe Bryant. After a year-long farewell tour, in which he was fortunate to avoid major injury, Bryant took the floor for one last time on Wednesday April 13 against the Utah Jazz. And did not disappoint his fans at Staples Center, including celebrities, former teammates, and millions of viewers at home. In 42 minutes (5 more than he played in any game this year), Bryant netted an amazing 60 points, most of any player in the entire season. Most importantly, from 5:41 left in the fourth to 30 seconds left in the 4th, Bryant poured in 17 points, the entire total his team scored. His first bucket cut the lead to 3. His last put the Lakers up by 3. Final, 101-96. Fin.
