I never appreciated Kobe for being the legend he is. In a game of (increasingly more) softees, he's remained quite the opposite. It takes a real savage to have literally no reaction to this:

@andrewmettinger This was awesome. I remember watching this. Funny thing is Barnes ended up becoming a Laker after this. Same with Artest going after Kobe in the playoffs, and next year, they were teammates.

@jadlimcaco @andrewmettinger I wonder if @hbarnes can tell us about this 😄 after all, he is a fan of Product Hunt and did an awesome LIVE Chat recently

@bentossell @andrewmettinger @hbarnes is awesome! Got to watch him play the other day against the Lakers! Glad I went to that game, although the Warriors smoked the Lakers by almost 40 points!

@jadlimcaco @andrewmettinger and I went to a game when we were in SF! my first ever Basketball experience!

So sad to hear that @KobeBryant is finally hanging it up. 😥 I know it's time, but it just won't be the same watching the Lakers. I've been following him since I was 8 years old, and now, 20 years later I'm out of college, married, and have a career. Crazy that for most of my life, I was watching him play. I could remember asking my parents to buy me the latest Kobe shoes, and I remember while I played ball in High School, trying to emulate all of Kobe's moves. As a little tribute, I made a website showcasing the good things people are saying about Kobe from around the league and from others in the sports and entertainment world. Feel free to share and let me know if I missed some other quotes.

I emailed the link to a few friends that live near Kobe and one who knows him personally. Great job.

@mjmcclain Thanks Michael! One of your friends knows him personally??? Wow!!! Would be really cool if somehow, this got to him and he saw it  😁
