(Kobe) Bryant hadn’t been sure what he would be hearing from the fans during his final visit to Boston, where he had split the NBA Finals of 2008 and ’10. He waved in gratitude before the game when he heard his name being introduced to cheers.

“It’s just a surreal feeling,” he said. “I wish I could do more to show my gratitude to them. And I just tried to say thank you as much as I possibly could. It’s a weird feeling, walking across the center court, looking down at that logo, just trying to cherish it as much as possible.”

But then another point of view emerged. As soon as the ball found its way to Bryant, the booing started. It followed him like a stubborn defender — like a ghost of the former Celtic Tony Allen — everywhere he went.

With the possibility of a trade looming, Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina dropped CAA as his agency last season and planned to sign with French agent Bouna Ndiaye, the Daily News has learned.

Ntilikina, who was drafted eighth overall by Knicks in 2017, is on the trading block and desires a relocation, a source told the News. The Knicks declined offers to move Ntilikina at the trade deadline in February, acquired another point guard in Dennis Smith Jr., and Ntilikina quickly decided to change agents.

Ndiaye, who is from France, exclusively reps French players in the NBA — Rudy Gobert (Jazz), Nicolas Batum (Hornets), Evan Fournier (Magic) and Ian Mahinmi (Wizards). CAA, meanwhile, is one of the biggest NBA agencies.
