This is pretty cool.

There were plenty of A-list celebrities at Staples Center to watch Kobe Bryant’s final game last night – David Beckham, Jay-Z and, of course, Jack Nicholson were in attendance, to name just a few – though out of all the big names, Kanye West was definitely wearing the most interesting shirt.

To honor Bryant and his legendary career, Kanye remixed his “I feel like Pablo” shirt and turned it into a tribute to the Black Mamba.

“I feel like Kobe,” the shirt read on the front.

Bryant’s full name was printed on the back, along with “Lower Merion’s finest” in reference to Kobe’s high school, and 4.13.16 – the date of his retirement, aka “Mamba Day.”

Maybe Mr. West’s shirt inspired Bryant a little, as he went off for 60 points and even managed to force Kanye into cracking a rare smile.

What a night.
