(PG-13: Language) In 2012, towards the end of a close game between the Nets and his Lakers, Kobe Bryant ripped Gerald Wallace a new one by casually betting half a million dollars on a potentially game-clinching free throw.
One of the biggest stars in a town bursting with them went out with a bang. On his last NBA game, Kobe Bryant dropped 60 points to lead the Lakers to a comeback victory against the Jazz. Only 21 other players have scored at least 60 in a game. And Mamba is 37 years old.
