Kobe Bryant returned to the land of his childhood roots on Tuesday night: Philadelphia, PA…
He was introduced to the 76ers home crowd for the final time, and was welcomed like a hero…

My dude just received the same amount of cheers during player intros that the 76ers have gotten in like the last 5 years collectively.

…and for the first time all year: KOBE ACTUALLY MADE HIS SHOTS and had NINE points in the first minute! THIS IS IT … THIS IS THE GAME … THIS IS KOBE’S SWAN SONG:
But then, Oh No … Bad Kobe returned and in one of the most embarrassing ways ever:

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! Kobe no more pleaseeeeeeeeee.
He needs to revise his poem IMO
Anyways, the Lakers lost … but, Kobe was serenaded by the Philly crowd before he left and the 76ers game presentation staff celebrated like it was their first win of the year or something
Philly fans chant "KOBE! KOBE! KOBE!" as game ends while 76er employees celebrate first W like they just won Finals😭 pic.twitter.com/pBs3qBtbNM— Rob Perez (@WorldWideWob) December 2, 2015
