After playing just 11 minutes in his last game in Denver, Kobe Bryant hooked up two lucky fans with a signed pair of shoes ahead of the final buzzer.
“They earned them,” Bryant said after playing his final game in Denver. “The young ladies that were sitting in front of them did too. We had a little contest going on. They wanted to know what the name of our pet dog was. I just gave them a clue. I said it’s in a [Harry] Potter film. So every timeout, they’d throw out 15 names. The deal was, if they got it, I’d give them my shoes. So they got it. They got it.”
