Former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant just over a month ago wrapped up his illustrious 20-year NBA career. However, the accolades appear to be keep coming as he’s set to receive the inaugural ‘Athlete of the Decade’ Award at the 10th annual “Guys Choice” awards held by Spike TV. It will be presented to him on June 4 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City.

This comes after the 37-year-old put together one of his most memorable performances in his final NBA game by scoring an eye-popping 60 points. He became the oldest player in league history to record 60 points in a single game, surpassing both Michael Jordan’s 51 points and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 46. He will also be the first Hall of Famer to score 30 or more points in their final game.

Bryant certainly has a worthy resume that’s deserving of the award for what he accomplished over the last 10 years. During that span, he racked up numerous accolades that include winning two NBA titles, a pair of NBA Finals MVPs, an NBA MVP, 10 All-Star Game selections, three All-Star Game MVPs, eight All-NBA First Team nods, and six NBA All-Defensive First Team selections. Above all else, he demonstrated longevity to stay atop of his game at an elite level that very few before him were able to do.
