After 20 amazing seasons, basketball fans across the country are saying goodbye to L.A. Laker Kobe Bryant. The future hall of famer ended his career with a win.

When you take 50 shots in a game, you know the night is yours. Kobe also scored 60 points Wednesday night against the Jazz, which only adds to the more than 33,000 career points.

Throughout the night the 5-time NBA champion received multiple standing ovations. The night also included video tributes and plenty of well wishes from his famous friends.

The 18-time All-Star turned pro at just 17, spending his entire career with the Lakers.

"To spend 20 years here, you can't write something better than this. It’s beautiful. I can't believe it's come to an end. You'll always be in my heart," Kobe said.

As you can imagine the game was sold out. Fans forked over $2,000 on average in resale tickets.

The most expensive ticket listed just over $25,000.
