After 19 Seasons, 15 playoff appearances, 5 NBA Championships and 81 games, Kobe “The Black Mamba” Bryant is retiring from professional basketball.
Tonight is the last game we will ever see Kobe play in the NBA, he has been an idol to many players who grew up watching him and taught generations what determination and hard work looks like. To celebrate Nike had its athletes and ambassadors don black and gold shoes and clothes today to show the black mamba the respect he deserves.
