Thursday night was a very emotional night for quite a few basketball and sports fans as it marked Kobe Bryant's very last basketball game.
The Black Mamba certainly went out in fashion as he capped off the end of his 20 year career with the Los Angeles Lakers by beating the Utah Jazz 101-96 and scoring 60 points himself in his final outing!
After the 37-year-old scored his final bucket of the night at the free line, the entire El Lay crowd was immediately on their feet. Not to mention, the famous athlete walked over and gave Shaq O'Neal a hug and, once the final buzzer went off, took center stage to give the crowd a fitting speech (below).
Kobe addressed how blessed he has been throughout his career and thanked everyone from his friends, family, and teammates… before dropping the mic with a "Mamba Out!" LOVES it!
Of course, with #24 being one of the greatest players to ever play the game, he had the world watching him. Not surprisingly, several A-lister took to Twitter to praise the now retired NBA star — including Reese Witherspoon, Kanye West, and even President Barack Obama.

Wrestlemania is the biggest event in wrestling, so it's no surprise some of the biggest WWE stars crashed the ring at the Sunday night event.
Though we were a bit surprised to see a basketball legend take on some of the most ferocious opponents in a 20-man Battle Royal…
The sold out crowd of Wrestlemania 32 was treated to tons of action, but the main event was no doubt the return of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who took a break from filming the upcoming Baywatch movie to return to his roots!
We could totally smell what the Rock was cooking as he took on Bray Wyatt and his bearded clan of brothers, jokingly accusing them of being inbred and members of Duck Dynasty. LOLz!
Luckily, the Rock had a surprise ally to help him in the ring, his longtime rival John Cena — who put his feud aside to help Johnson take on Wyatt, Braun Strowman, and Erick Rowan!
Aside from the Rock/Cena teamup, the biggest shock of the night was the
The Oscars are only a few days away and everyone's getting excited for the award show — even sports stars!
Of course Diesel isn't really much of an actor, but hey, you don't need to be when you're over seven feet tall and fighting a bear!

This is one crazy Wednesday, y'all!
It all started when Sharon tweeted directly to the former basketball star about a dream she had:
That's really more information than we ever wanted.
Shaq's response was sweet and succinct:
Now that's a birthday bash!
ICYMI: On Saturday, Shaquille O'Neal's son Shareef had a pretty dope 16th birthday party in El Lay that had everything a teenager could ask for — including celebrity guests, exotic cars, and a killer dessert spread. Fierce!
Sources shared that around 400 people turned up for the former NBA star's flesh-and-blood's event. Not to mention, the youngster was presented with two luxury cars, one Jeep and one Lamborghini. Whoa!
It appears the teen is thrilled with his gifts as he took to Instagram to flaunt (above) one of his new whips, and wrote:
Talk about a cramped space!
Jimmy Fallon was the host of course and the rules were simple — if you get a question right, you send a mystery celeb to the opponent's phone booth, but if you get it wrong, you're having one join you!
Shaq's already a big dude, but cram in Alex Trebeck, Megan Boone, and a couple other mystery guests and hilarity ensues!
Ch-ch-check out the outrageous trivia game (above) and let us know if you think Hugh REALLY knew all the answers or they just wanted to cram Shaq in a box! LOLz!
If this is just a look at the premiere, then this show is going to be a must-watch!
Fans of late '00s reality shows probably remember when Hoopz won the very first season of Flavor of Love.
Well, Hoopz, aka Nikki Alexander, is back with a reality TV show of her own and it already seems extremely juicy.
Oxygen's new docu-series It Takes A Sister follows Nikki and her four sisters, eight nieces and nephews, and an assistant all living under the same roof in Knoxville, Tennessee… so it's safe to say things are going to get loud.
In a sneak peek of the new series, Nikki goes out for drinks with her younger sisters and breaks down, saying:
"Break-ups are especially hard, when someone is painting you a fairy tale, but turns out you're not the one in it. But at the end of the day, I believe everything happens for a reason."
It's really sad, but also extremely powerful, and we cannot wait to see how the show unfolds when it premieres on August 4 at 9/8c on Oxygen!
