On This Date in 2016: Sights and Sounds from Kobe Bryant's iconic 60-point farewell game

On April 13th in 2016, nearly five months after he announced that the 2015-16 season would be his last in the NBA, the late Kobe Bryant was set to play his final game at the Staples Center against the Utah Jazz.

His 60 points are the most scored by an NBA player in their final game. April 13th, 2020 marks the fourth anniversary of his legendary farewell game and the first since his passing on January 26th.

Paying a tribute to his legendary performance, here's a look back at the sights and sounds from his game on 'Mamba Day':
