NBA fans from all over the world—both LA Lakers fanatics and haters—tuned to their screens to witness Kobe Bryant’s final professional game ever. Everyone was teary-eyed (yes, including the boys) as the Black Mamba gave everyone one last show to remember after 20 strong years on court. Scoring 60 points and leading his team to a win against the Utah Jazz, Kobe showed everyone how champions end their careers with a bang. For the first time ever, there were no Kobe haters as everyone gave him their nod of respect. Whether you like him or not, the fact remains, the NBA just won’t be the same without the five-time champion.
One person we never expected to have as much #feels about this is model Gigi Hadid.
"Growing up a #KOBE fan made me want to be a great athlete and a great sports fan: two things that have brought so much joy to my life. Emotional tonight #8 #24 Thank you for 20 years @kobebryant!"
She posted this super cute photo from her 11th birthday all dressed up in a Kobe jersey. How many of you can say you wanted a Lakers-themed birthday party, right? Kobe, you have it all, talent, respect, and the hottest fan ever.
