At All-Star weekend, the NBA’s biggest stars hadn’t come to beat (Kobe) Bryant, but treat him like a monument. Never again does Bryant get to be surrounded with such greatness, never again surrounded with context to his career. Kobe Bryant is rounding third and headed for home.

“It hasn’t hit home yet,” Bryant told The Vertical. “I’m not going through this and thinking, ‘Oh, it’s coming to an end.’ I’m enjoying it moment by moment. And it feels damn good to be able to experience it.”

As Bryant and his family awaited the elevator to bring them downstairs, he hesitated and said, “I mean, it feels damn good to just be playing still. … To just be playing.”
