Today is a monumental day in the history of the NBA. Not only does Kobe Bryant, one of the best players to ever take the court, play his final game. But also one of the best up-and-comers, Stephen Curry, has a chance to make history with a 73 win season.
For years Kobe Bryant has been the gold standard when it comes to basketball players.
Be it with buzzer beaters.
Or with monster dunks.
But like all things his reign at the top has to end with a fitting last game on his home court in Los Angeles.
Now when we want to see magic on the court we have to turn to his successor.
But magic still exists.
