Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant played his final game on Wednesday, and he shocked everyone by pouring in 60 points. That makes one more thing to add to his already extensive list of achievements, but what Kobe did the day after will blow your mind—unless you truly understand what makes Kobe Kobe.
The morning after his final game as a Laker, the 37-year-old hit the gym and worked out. That's right, even after hoisting up 50 shots from the field and playing 42 minutes, the Black Mamba worked out.
I'm told there were plans for a post-game party for Kobe and team to celebrate his career. But won't happen. Kobe waking up early for work

Reports reveal that the five-time NBA champion woke up, got a workout in, and was in his office by 8:30 a.m. We aren't sure whether Kobe knows what retirement means, but that's the most Kobe thing he could've done. We don't expect him to get a dad bod anytime soon.
Lakers spokesman John Black told us he heard from Kobe's people that Bryant worked out early this morning and was at his office by 8:30 a.m.

"I gotta go work out tomorrow. I gotta go find a new routine. It gives you a sense of purpose and it gives you a plan." Kobe Bryant
