Kobe Bryant’s farewell tour made its final stop at Oracle Arena on Thursday night.

Before the Los Angeles Lakers’ game against the Golden State Warriors, Dubs executive Jerry West narrated a heartfelt tribute to the Black Mamba.

“The Logo” was L.A.’s general manager when the team acquired Bryant on draft night 20 years ago. Because of the history there, West had a unique perspective on what Bryant has done for the game of basketball.

He made sure to highlight Bryant’s dedication and work ethic, which has become the stuff of legend.

After the video, it looked like Kobe had tears in his eyes.
