Kobe Bryant might have ruled out on-court gift presentations for his farewell tour, but he never laid out any ground rules for giving gifts.

The Black Mamba gave a pair of shoes to Paul George after the Indiana Pacers edged the Los Angeles Lakers, 89-87, Monday night, Bryant's final game in at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. George thanked him with a hug.
