What do you give a man who has left his fingerprints all over the NBA history books?

An actual piece of league history perhaps.

That's what the Boston Celtics did for Kobe Bryant's final game at TD Garden on Wednesday, framing a piece of the team's iconic parquet floor and presenting it to the Los Angeles Lakers star privately before tipoff.

According to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times, the piece is from the court the rivals played on during the 2010 NBA Finals, before the Celtics replaced it prior to the 2015-16 season:
