Kobe Bryant made his final trip to Charlotte on Monday night, where before the game he got a very special message from Michael Jordan.

As for the game itself? Kobe didn’t have his best night, making only five of 20 shots (for 20 points, seven of which came on free throws) as the Lakers lost, 108-98.

What Kobe did do was make sure any points scored on him were gonna be hard-earned. Case in point: He almost took Jeremy Lin’s head clean off when he tried to drive down the lane, old-school style.

The funniest part?

Kobe reacting like he got all ball instead of half-ball, half-skull. Never change, No. 24.
