Kobe Bryant's NBA career officially comes to an end tonight. The 37-year-old veteran will play his last professional basketball game as the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Utah Jazz. Kobe will be remembered for a lot of his achievements over the span of his 20-year career: championship rings, MVP awards, NBA records, etc. But the most important thing people will remember about him ... is that he's a Philadelphia Eagles fan.
