It's hard to put into word's what Kobe meant to me as a basketball player and Los Angeles Laker.

So I just want to share some of the best stuff I've found on the internets today.

Bleacher Report has some of the best visuals of the day: 

Nike brought back the LeBron and Kobe puppets, with Kobe reminiscing on his career and having two jersey's retired: 

And of course Kobe gave us highlights for days: 

Like this attempt to pick his top 10 plays from NBATv

And his ridiculous 81 point game against the Raptors:

The 60 point night against the Jazz in his last home game of his career:

And the best play I've seen in my 33 years of Lakers fandom: 

So, thank you Kobe and congratulations on a well deserved honor.
