After 20 years in the NBA, Kobe Bryant is currently embarking on his own farewell tour as the Lakers play through their 2015-16 season schedule.

The latest stop for the soon-to-be-retired star was Oakland as the Lakers took on the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.

Respect

Kobe also had a message for Curry's in-form teammate, Draymond Green - this one, though, was written on the power forward's sneakers:

As Kobe says his goodbyes to the league before calling time on his Hall of Fame-worthy career, there is no shortage of big names lining up to pay tribute to what the Lakers legend has achieved.

And, clearly, the Black Mamba believes Curry, at least, has the potential to echo those achievements in the years to come.

Chasing stars

After last season's exploits, the Warriors star already has one championship ring and an MVP award to his name. If he is to catch Bryant, however, he still has a little way to go.

Kobe will retire having won five titles, two NBA Finals MVP awards and the 2008 regular-season MVP title.

It sure is going to be fun to watch Curry "come and get it" in the years to come.
