On April 13, 2016, the world watched as Kobe Bryant stepped on the Staples Center floor for his final NBA game against the Utah Jazz. In typical Black Mamba fashion, he ended the game with 60 points (the most scored by any player during the 2015-2016 season) and a win. It was the perfect ending for the storied career of one of the greatest to ever play the game.
All eyes were on The Bean, as his farewell tour made news the entire season. He received his proverbial flowers while he could still smell them those who clamored to his games the entire season, from fans to fellow players to legends like his greatest inspiration Michael Jordan.
Off the court, Jordan Brand paid tribute to Bryant with the Air Jordan Kobe Pack, comprised of shoes 1-30 in two sets: a monochromatic white option and a black version. The lone deviation from solid colorways appear on the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 8 silhouettes, which feature purple and gold Los Angeles Lakers-inspired accents.
