Before Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant walks away from the game of basketball at the end of this season, a few of his peers wanted to give the 18-time All-Star some parting shots.

Don't worry, it was all in good fun.

During the 2016 NBA All-Star festivities in Toronto this past weekend, Bryant was the center of attention. Fellow NBA stars Chris Paul (Los Angeles Clippers), Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat) and Carmelo Anthony (New York Knicks) spent some time addressing Bryant at a private dinner.

As they paid their respects to the five-time NBA champion and presented him with gifts, they also had some fun with his age (37) and retirement.

Just wait until you see who gave him a cane.

More details about the dinner are available via Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press.
