Kobe Bryant Scores 60 Points in Final Lakers Game; Jay Z, Kanye West, Adam Levine & More React



Kobe Bryant went out with a bang last night (Wednesday, Apr. 13), scoring 60 points in his final NBA game. Some of today's biggest celebrities gathered in the arena at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to watch the iconic shooting guard deliver an epic performance during his last day as a Laker. Jay Z, Adam Levine, Kanye West and many more reacted to the game and reflected on his enviable career.

The L.A. Lakers took home another win last night against the Utah Jazz, but the 101-96 victory was bittersweet for a lot of the viewers and players. The team celebrated the departure of one of the most-valued athletes in the sports world. Bryant has dedicated two decades of his life to professional basketball, that's 20 seasons with the Lakers starting as number eight and finishing as no. 24.

Fans who weren't able to get court-side seats to the game like Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar and Adam Levine (who was joined by his pregnant Victoria's Secret Angel wife Behati Prinsloo), caught the star-studded tribute message that aired during the first-quarter timeout. The clip featured farewells from entertainers like Snoop Dogg, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West and Ice Cube.

Die-hard Lakers fan, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, delivered an unforgettable rendition of the National Anthem on the bass guitar alone. Flea, who also shared his sentiments toward the 37-year-old reitred player, was decked out in a matching Lakers fitted cap and sweatshirt.

The love didn't stop there. A flood of social media posts came pouring in surrounding Bryant's final game. Nicknamed "Black Mamba," Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat alike generated tags like #ThankYouKobe and #MambaDay.

Check out how celebrities like Zendaya, Kendall Jenner, Sugar Ray Leonard, T.I. and more felt about Bryant's last game below:
