Kobe Bryant’s career finale Wednesday at Staples Center, where the Los Angeles Lakers face the Utah Jazz before a sold-out crowd, will be one of the most heavily covered regular-season games in recent NBA history.

In fact, by Tuesday afternoon, between 400 and 500 media members were issued credentials, said Lakers’ longtime publicist John Black, who called those figures “completely unprecedented” for a regular-season game during his 26-year tenure with the team. That group includes about 60 international media members, NBA spokesman Tim Frank said.
