For Kobe Bryant, the retirement experience has been overwhelming. “It’s been crazy. It’s been different, being on the road and experiencing [that],” he said Saturday. “The acceptance and the thank-yous and things like that, it’s been wonderful.” It has also been quite an experience for Bryant’s teammates.

Rookie guard D’Angelo Russell said he wants to snag some memorabilia at some point. “It’s a long season,” Russell said. “I’ll try to get something every game.”Julius Randle wants autographs, too.”Oh, yeah, [Kobe is] going to have to sign a couple things for me,” the second-year forward said. “He can’t go out that easy.”
