Kobe Bryant's last visit to the San Antonio Spurs as an NBA player ended in defeat, as the LA Lakers lost 106-102 at the AT&T Center.
Bryant managed to score 25 points in his last appearance in San Antonio before his retirement, but this wasn't enough to stop Spurs from achieving their 37th straight home victory.
The Texas-based team did what many other teams have done for the five-time NBA Champion this season since he announced his retirement, and paid tribute to his 19-year career.

Despite not playing well enough to help the Lakers win on the night, Spurs made Bryant look brilliant in their tribute, with some very nice words coming from San Antonio players and their head coach, Gregg Popovich.
The footage showed the 37-year-old scoring against Spurs, which hadn't really been seen that much in other tributes by other teams, and Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Popovich spoke highly about Bryant's career.
After the video had finished, Spurs fans gave a standing ovation to the Lakers star in a very sweet moment.
Bryant said, according to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times: "It was very nostalgic, brought back a lot of memories. It's hard to get into a competitive mind-set after that."
