It has been nearly two months since former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant wrapped up his illustrious 20-year NBA career. His final NBA game was arguably one of his most memorable performances that saw him drop 60 points. It’s something that the 37-year-old is still in total disbelief over how things unfolded.

Bryant clearly didn’t shy away from the moment in his final game against the Utah Jazz by becoming the oldest player to score 60 points in a single game in league history while hoisting up a career-high 50 shots. He was absolutely masterful in the final few minutes of the contest scoring 15 of the Lakers’ final 17 points, including the go-ahead 20-foot pull-up jumper with 31.6 seconds remaining. The output marked the sixth 60-point game of his career.

It put the final touches to what will undoubtedly be a first-ballot Hall of Fame career. Bryant has a long list of accolades that includes five NBA titles, two NBA Finals MVPs, 17 All-Star game selections, third on the all-time scoring list, one regular-season MVP award, 11 All-NBA First Team nods, nine NBA All-Defensive First Team selections, and four NBA All-Star game MVPs. All in all, the fact that Bryant is still in disbelief of how his final game turned out is a clear indication of how remarkable his performance was.
