You thought Hollywood endings were only in films, huh? Well, you’re wrong. When Kobe Bryant’s involved, anything’s possible.

In his final NBA appearance on Wednesday night, Bryant went off for an incredible 60 points.

The 37-year-old put up 23 points in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Utah Jazz who scored just 21, and ended up hitting a pull-up jumper from just inside the three-point line with 31.6 remaining to give the Lakers the lead for good.

Staples Center went crazy, and rightly so.

Bryant would then hit two free throws after the Jazz had to foul to stop the clock, which would allow the Black Mamba to take his total to 60 points.

What an unbelievable night.
