Let’s be honest, the Clippers tribute to Kobe Bryant on Tuesday sucked. It really sucked compared to many of the other emotional video tributes other teams have made for Kobe during his farewell tour. Then again, the Clippers sucked for the majority of Kobe’s career, so it’s only fitting. For more than half of Kobe’s career, the “other team in LA” was as good as Kobe and the Lakers were on Tuesday night when Kobe made just 2 of 12 shots and the team lost 81-103.
“I hate to see him go out this way. It bothers the hell out of me,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “He still has the heart of a champion. That will never leave him.”
Thankfully, there’s just 4 more stops left on this tour and we wont have to see images like this ever again.
