The Los Angeles Lakers will make their lone visit to Boston Wednesday night, a special appearance as it will be Kobe Bryant’s last time taking the floor in Bean Town. The farewell tour has been very memorable thus far and it will hit one of its most significant stops in Boston.
Kobe Bryant has faced the Celtics twice in the NBA Finals during his career and the talented “Big Three” challenged him in ways no team has done before. Bryant and the Lakers defeated the Celtics in a thrilling 2010 NBA Finals and the Game 3 victory in Boston is something fans will remember forever.
Following the loss to the Charlotte Hornets, Kobe was asked what atmosphere he anticipates in his final game in Boston according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:
What atmosphere does Kobe anticipate for his last game in Boston? Smiles: "Love/hate fest sort of thing." (on @TWCSportsNet)

Bryant is making an effort to play in every game this season, especially the Eastern Conference road games where he only has one opportunity to get in front of the fans. Kobe’s family will also be making their way to Boston to see the game, showing just how meaningful this will be for Bryant.
Although it will be an emotional night for Kobe, he will try to win another game at TD Garden.
