Unhappy Kobe went down like a true hero...

Seriously, dude just gave his 300% to get his crippled D'Antoni led no-defense Lakers a playoff seed. Never seen a player take the burden of a whole franchise (Lakers non the less) on his shoulders the way Kobe Bryant did. The last 3 games were something taken out of an epic movie, truly inspirational.

Knowing his work ethic, he will most likely be back early next season, but what Kobe did in his 17th season is not only remarkable in the context of basketball but in what a human being is capable of.

When he retires, the game as we knew it is gone.

It was an emotional game

Thought Kobe was finally getting subbed after he hurt his other knee, but It was Pau instead, which led to 6 straight David Lee points

I must say, the way he went out was pretty glorious (referencing death of Achilles)

I wonder if any player in NBA history has scored a point with a severed achilles.
