Who’s the best one-on-one player in your opinion? Tracy McGrady: Kobe (Bryant) is definitely at the top of that list. I could go with a handful of guys that are great one-on-one players. Baron Davis. Cuttino Mobley. Lou Williams. Jamal Crawford. These are one-on-one certified killers. Allen Iverson. That’s what these guys do. But definitely, Kobe is at the top of that list.

Six years ago today was maybe the greatest day in NBA regular season history.
As Golden State earned its 73rd win, breaking the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls all-time record mark of 72 wins…
at the same Kobe poured in 60 points in his final game ever…

📅 On this day in 2016, the @Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant scored 60 points in the final game of his NBA career. He set career highs with 50 FGA and 21 3PA.
It was the sixth 60-point game of Bryant’s career, the second-most such games in NBA history behind Wilt Chamberlain (32). pic.twitter.com/zaX0CWfZ62 – 11:01 AM

“He’s the greatest player of all time and so to be fortunate, to be a part of that is something that I take a great deal of pride in and obviously you want to see him have those seasons play out ultimately culminating in another championship or more championships,” Vogel said. -via Los Angeles Times / April 9, 2022
Harrison Faigen: “I think its about time. I’m not gonna get jealous of LeBron, he deserves it,” Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, to @Malika Andrews on the ESPN broadcast, when asked about LeBron eventually passing his all-time regular season scoring record. -via Twitter @hmfaigen / April 3, 2022
Ben Golliver: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says he’d be willing to meet Lakers’ LeBron James to discuss their differences on issues like vaccine advocacy: “I admire the things he’s done… Sending a whole school to college, wow, that’s amazing… Some of the things he’s done he should be embarrassed by.” pic.twitter.com/0QlNMNUXit -via Twitter @BenGolliver / April 3, 2022
