MAMBA OUT

It's finally over it! After an historic and amazing 20 year-NBA career, Before calling it quits,  The Black Mamba cooked up a signature performance one last time. Kobe dropped 60 points on 50 shots to hand the Lakers a 101-96 win over the Utah Jazz. By the stat line, many would've thought retiring wasn't the occasion for Bryant tonight. In the second half alone, Kobe put on an array of vintage "Black Mamba" material. Playing all but six minutes of the finale, it was quite safe to say that's what we wanted to see. After the game, Kobe was greeted and respectfully praised by NBA legends, celebrity friends and over a ton of fans. It's going to be hard for a lot of people to come to terms with the fact that they've witnessed Kobe play in his last game of his career but the memories we'll have, will be cherished for an eternity. 

Golden State Surpass Bulls' Record

In winning 125-104 over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night, the Golden State Warriors, again, jumped the line and seized something the league still struggles to believe. They now hold the NBA's best-ever regular season with a 73-9 record. Stephen Curry also added another broken record to his endless list from this year, making an astonishing 400 three pointers in a single season. Curry went supernova in the first half, hitting six 3-pointers, as the Warriors rang up 70 on the Grizz. The soon-to-be two time MVP finished the night with 46 points and 10 treys. The Warriors now look to repeat as NBA champions, when they host the Houston Rockets in Game 1 of their NBA playoff first-round series the weekend.
