Well, the NBA, and fans the world over, have bid adieu to yet another great. So how did the world acknowledge Kobe Bryant’s last game? Social media was in meltdown, and will continue to be a flutter for days to come. Let's check out some of the most viewed reactions to this legend’s retirement.
Baseball players got in on the action.
60. Winner. Legend. Goat. Mamba. #Kobe— Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) April 14, 2016
Budding NBA stars showed their admiration.
Football players praised their brutha-from-anutha-sporta (so it doesn't sound quite right, but ‘mutha’ wouldn't have worked either, ok?)
Congrats Kobe thanks for all the Great memories! Love you brother 💯— Adrian Peterson (@AdrianPeterson) April 14, 2016
A future WNBA-er demonstrated her appreciation of Kobe's support.

And that other legend, LeBron, kept his emotions in check.

Kobe has been an inspiration - not just to the NBA up-and-comers, but to people over the world. Some have asked that the day be Mamba Day. It could happen.
