If you’ve been following the NBA, you know that tonight is a HUGE day in NBA history. At 10:30pm EST two of the biggest games of the century will be airing.
On ESPN 2, you can catch Kobe Bryant playing his last game EVER (as the Lakers won’t be advancing into the play-offs). Kobe started off playing for the Charlotte Hornets, but was soon traded to the Lakers. Although he didn’t really stick-out initially, Kobe became a force to be reckoned with in the 1998-1999 season. When Shaquille O’Neal arrive on the scene, the two became one of the most powerful duos ever to hit the court. Once Shaw left the team, Bryant lead the charge. In 2013, Bryant’s years on the court started to show. He had knee surgery and needed to miss a couple of games. Then in 2014-2015 seasons he just couldn’t return back to his old self. Still Kobe’s got 5 championships under his belt and has made his mark in NBA history, earning a spot for himself among the greatest players.
Golden State Going for the Record
Meanwhile on ESPN at the same time, you’ll be able to catch the Golden State Warriors face the Memphis Grizzlies to break the record for the greatest amount of wins in a single season. The current record-holders are the Chicago Bulls, who managed to score 72 single-season wins during the 1995-1996 season. Currently, the Warriors are tied with the Bulls for single-season wins. All they need is this one win to push them over. And the game definitely looks in their favor. If Sundays game has anything to do with it, the Warriors should have this record in the pocket. Why would both games air @ 10:30pm EST? I have no idea. But make sure to tune into both. This is going to be a night for the books.
