Kobe Bryant talks incredible performance in final NBA game (Video)


Kobe Bryant spoke with the media after Wednesday’s amazing 60 point performance in his final career game.

It was a game that will be go down as one of the most memorable in the history of the NBA as Kobe Bryant went out the only way he knows how: by taking plenty of shots and putting up an insane point total in his final career game.

After starting Wednesday’s game against the Utah Jazz slowly, Bryant kept getting the ball fed to him by his Los Angeles Lakers teammates and caught fire. When it was all said and done, Kobe had dropped 60 points for the sixth time in his career and the Lakers got a win in what has been a trying season.

After the game, Kobe Bryant met with the media for the final time as an NBA player, where he talked about the game he just put up and his career as a whole, which will go down as one of the best in not just team history, but the history of the entire league:

Kobe Bryant will be remembered for a career that included five NBA titles, 18 All-Star game appearances and 15 times being named to an All-NBA team. He’ll be remembered for 81 points against Toronto, 60+ points against Dallas and Portland and dropping 61 points in Madison Square Garden to set the record.

Bryant has been criticized during his career for taking too many shots and being reluctant to pass the ball…or even THINK about passing the ball. When you can shoot like Bryant has been able to do during the last two decades, you can’t blame him for taking that many shots in his career.
