Kobe Bryant Retires

Kobe Bryant plays his last NBA game tomorrow night. For 20 years he was the center of the L.A. sports universe. Even though the Lakers haven’t been dominating the spotlight lately, all eyes will be on the Staples Center tomorrow night to say goodbye to the one and only “black mamba.” Madeleine speaks to a longtime NBA writer who met Kobe when he was 17, just before he entered the league.
