Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant had one of the most memorable last career games in the history of the NBA dropping 60 points vs. Utah Jazz.
According to the San Antonio Spurs’ superstar DeMar DeRozan, Bryant’s career finale could only be compared to the Avengers’ movie.
He instantly compared Bryant’s last game to Michael Jordan’s last straw as a player noting that several NBA legends went out on a quiet note.
“Remember Michael Jordan’s last game, when his team was losing and the fans were all rooting for him to go back in the game?”, DeRozan wrote for the Los Angeles Times.
“Jordan mostly just stood up and waved. So many of the guys I’ve been fans of, when they retire, they just kind of go out quietly. This was different. This was like an “Avengers” movie.”
“Twenty years from now, if you want to show someone what kind of player Kobe Bryant was, it’s all in this game. That’s amazing, man,” DeRozan stated.
Bryant’s last career game would be a great occasion regardless of what the Lakers’ legend would have done in the game. However, Kobe left the league with a huge ‘bang’.
The five-time champion scored 60 points in his final game, including hitting the go-ahead shot to help the Lakers beat the Utah Jazz.
