Here's What Magic Johnson Had To Say After Kobe Bryant Scored 60 Points In Final Game

Kobe Bryant's NBA career has officially come to a close after igniting the crowd inside the Staples Center one last time Wednesday night. It was as loud as it's ever been, as fans in attendance witnessed something that had never been done before. 

The future Hall of Famer scored a staggering 60 points in front of the home crowd, shattering the NBA record for most points scored in a final game. It was a performance to remember and one that won't be forgotten. And, in the opinion of Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, it was the single greatest final performance he's ever seen in sports.

Bryant was always determined on the court and showed much of the same last night, but even in his first day of retirement the Lakers legend is again hard at work.
