Kobe Bryant and Media Prepare for Final Game
Everyone wants to say goodbye. Tonight the five-time NBA champion suits up for his 1,566th and final game as a professional player. Love him or hate him, the 20-year veteran is a living legend, and up to 500 media members from 15 countries will be on hand as he closes out against the Utah Jazz. Though tickets are sold out, they’re being scalped online for as much as $27,500. Meanwhile, Bryant says his own finale hasn’t really sunk in yet, and he’s just thankful for his career.
