The Kobe Bryant farewell tour is hitting the final stretch.

Kobe says he’s hitting every stop left.

Lakers remaining schedule:

  • at Jazz
  • vs. Heat
  • vs. Celtics
  • at Clippers
  • vs. Clippers
  • at Pelicans
  • at Rockets
  • at Thunder
  • vs. Jazz

That’s great news for fans in Los Angeles, Utah, New Orleans, Houston and Oklahoma City. It’s a treat to see Kobe once more before his career ends.

Kobe has played four straight games, so playing the final nine would bring his playing streak to 13. That’d be his second longest of the season behind a 15-gamer in November and December.

Hopefully, Kobe’s 37-year-old body holds up.

Thankfully, Byron Scott has finally turned over major responsibility to the Lakers’ young players. That should ease the burden on Kobe, allowing him to at least make an appearance on the court more nine more times.
