You really couldn’t have scripted this any better.

In what was an absolutely incredible performance, Kobe Bean Bryant scored 60 points last night in a win against the Utah Jazz.

It was his last ever NBA game, and in 42 minutes of play, the Black Mamba went 22-of-50 from the field. He also added 4 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block.

Bryant outscored the Jazz 23 to 21 in the fourth quarter, and willed the Lakers to victory after they fell behind by as many as 14 in the final period.

Kobe scored 23 points in the final 9:30, and went 5-of-5 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line over the last 3:04, when he poured in 15 of his points.

Anyway, enough talking. Just sit back and enjoy watching greatness one last time.
