Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistApril 7, 2016

Even after a franchise-record 62nd loss of the season, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant was in a mingling mood.

On Wednesday night, the 37-year-old Bryant put up 17 points in a 91-81 loss in his final game against the Los Angeles Clippers. It was just another loss in a dreadful season for the purple and gold, but the Black Mamba wasn't going to let it keep him from connecting with his peers. 

Bryant exchanged pleasantries with numerous Clippers players and coaches after the game. When it came time to chat with Chris Paul, the Black Mamba made the most of the moment, even having some fun with Paul's son.

There are just four games remaining in the #MambaFarewellCountdown. As Bryant's 20-year career winds down, he is taking the time to cherish every precious second he has left on the court.
