This is it. The end of a season. The end of a career. Both of these carry meaning, but only one of them really matters to me today.
Thank you to Kobe for a wonderful 20 years with the franchise I root for. There has been much written and said over the years, but there has been way more good than bad and the highs provided are ones which will stick with me forever.
I really have nothing else to add. Enjoy the game, folks. Regardless of the outcome and the final score, I know I will.
