MVPs of Social Media: Kobe Bryant Lifts Two Brands at Once

That was before his retirement after his final game as a Laker on Wednesday night, so don't be surprised if he shows up here again next week -- along with Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, who broke the NBA record for most wins in a season on the same night.
