Kobe Bryant's farewell tour headed to the East Coast on Monday for his final game in Charlotte, where the Los Angeles Lakers star received a special message from his idol, Michael Jordan.

The NBA legend and Hornets owner recorded a video addressed to Bryant that flashed across the Jumbotron at Time Warner Cable Arena before tipoff. Jordan compared Bryant to a little brother, congratulated the five-time NBA champion on his career and noted he is looking forward to seeing what Bryant will do next.

Bryant, whose affinity for Jordan has been well documented, watched the message from the Lakers bench:
