This season marked the last year that Kobe Bryant will play in the NBA. Kobe started his career in 1996 being drafted by the Charlotte Hornets and then being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers before playing a single game in the NBA, which would mark the start of a legendary career. Kobe Bryant spent his second last year in the NBA and said that he would retire at the end of this season, having a fair well tour around the NBA, and in his last home game against the Utah Jazz, he put on a show for his fans, scoring a whopping 60 points at the age of 36, coming close to his 81 point game against the Toronto raptors in 2006. Kobe Bryant ends his legendary career with 5 NBA championships, 18 NBA all-star appearances, 4 NBA all-star Most Valuable Player wins, 2008 NBA MVP, 2 Olympic gold medals (2008 and 2012), 2 time league scoring champ and the NBA slam dunk contest winner in 1997. A career like this has left basketball fans and players wandering if Kobe Bryant is the best or one of the bet players to ever play basketball.
