Photos of the Day: It's Kobe vs. Pau!

Kobe Bryant (24) walks past former teammate Pau Gasol (16) during the L.A. Lakers game against the Chicago Bulls at STAPLES Center...on January 28, 2016.

Last Thursday, a couple of friends and I went down to STAPLES Center in Los Angeles to attend a Lakers game against the Chicago Bulls. The Lakers lost, 114-91, but it was cool to see Kobe Bryant play in person one last time before he retires this April [as opposed to May or June (in the middle of the playoffs, or the NBA Finals themselves), unfortunately]. And it was only fitting that we'd see the Black Mamba square off against Pau Gasol..who was the reason why Kobe won two more NBA titles (in 2009 and 2010, respectively) after Gasol got traded to L.A. from the Memphis Grizzlies in early 2008.

Despite the Lakers' loss, I gotta thank my friend Sarina for hooking us up with seats inside The Centurion Suite for the game! It was either that or sitting up in the nosebleed section—and we wouldn't have even sat together. Kinda wish that the hamburger on The Centurion Suite's menu was a bit cheaper, though. I dished out 18 dollars...and the burger didn't even come with fries! Oh well.

Yes, this 3-pointer was made in the 4th quarter of the game between the L.A. Lakers and Chicago Bulls at STAPLES Center...on January 28, 2016.

I had fun during this game...despite the fact the Lakers lost to the Bulls, 114-91, at STAPLES Center on January 28, 2016.
