Kobe Bryant‘s final game in the NBA was nothing short of a spectacle in the best possible way. Though his body is nothing like what it used to be, Bryant played the final 30 minutes of Wednesday’s game against the Utah Jazz and scored an astounding 60 points, including the crucial go-ahead shot, in a 101-96 victory.

Yes, Bryant attempted 50 field goals, which is hilarious in and of itself, but he was brilliant, signature Kobe when he absolutely had to be making his last five shots and free throws in a win.
And, of course, his final play was an assist. Go figure.
