Adam Levine, David Beckham address Kobe Bryant and his legendary 60-point finale


On April 13, 2016, the late, great Kobe Bryant played his last ever game in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform. As we all know, he came out with quite a performance that evening, dropping 60 to lead the Lakers to a victory against a formidable Utah Jazz squad. The Lakers’ official Twitter page asked a number of celebrities and players to relive their own personal experiences during that historic evening, and it produced a couple of amazing stories from Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and soccer legend David Beckham.

For Levine, it was all about sharing the experience with his brother:

Sports has a unique way of bonding people together. This goes beyond actually playing the sport, as the camaraderie brought about by cheering for the same squad (or sometimes even opposing teams) just has an ability to bring friends and family closer together. This is exactly what made this moment so precious for Levine, as he shared this lasting memory with his younger brother.

As for Beckham, who has been an L.A. native since making the move to the United States in 2007 to take his talents to the MLS, he just knew that this was going to be a special night. Having been on the biggest of stages in his sport as well, Beckham understands the pressure of these types of moments. He also knows that the best of them step up to the plate when the lights are the brightest, and this is exactly what Kobe did on that fateful evening.

It’s actually been just four years since Kobe hanged it up, but after all that has happened since, the memory now feels like a lifetime ago. One thing is clear, though: we will never see another Kobe Bryant ever again.
