BOSTON >> The cheers erupted even before Kobe Bryant stepped on the floor. But then the boos emerged as soon as Bryant played.That marked exactly how Bryant wanted Celtics fans to handle him in his final game here at the Garden. The Lakers then wrote an ending as they saw fit. Their 112-104 victory over Boston on Wednesday at the Garden brought temporary solace over a taxing 6-27 record.Despite scoring 15 points on 5-of-18 shooting, Bryant still made a clutch shot for old-time’s sake. He nailed a 3-pointer to give the Lakers a 107-102 lead with 1:40 remaining. Bryant also grabbed 11 rebounds.“It was great,” Bryant said. “I didn’t get the start I wanted, but the finish was fine. Being able to say thank you to the fans — it was a beautiful moment.” That moment started before Bryant even played. First, the Celtics (18-14) privately presented Bryant with a piece of the parquet floor used in the 2010 NBA Finals. Then as the Celtics public address announcer uttered his name in lineup introductions, Bryant sat on the bench for a few seconds and soaked in the adulation.“I just can’t believe this is the last time I’m going to be here,” Bryant recalled thinking. “I can’t believe it. It seems like yesterday we were playing the Finals here. This is crazy.”Things soon became crazier. He soon heard heckles anytime he shot, passed or held the ball. “It was unbelievable. It felt great to get booed,” Bryant said. “The recognition at the top of the game, and then as soon as I touched the ball and they booed, I was like, ‘Ahh, I’m home.’ I feel great.” Bryant offered a hearty laugh as when he predicted beforehand this would happen. But those warm and fuzzy moments soon faded. Bryant missed his first eight shots as both pull-up jumpers and routine layups fell short. Bryant mis-timed two passes that led to turnovers. He also collected eight fouls and missed a free throw. During that time, Celtics fans only cheered for Bryant when he collected fouls or missed shots. “It’s not unusual,” said Lakers coach Byron Scott, who played during the Showtime Era. “I didn’t think anything about it. That was par for the course. Obviously they’ll cheer their team and show their appreciation. As soon as the games starts, they’ll go back to their true blue colors, which is Celtic green. That didn’t surprise me.”Bryant did not quiet the crowd until he made consecutive layups with 3:32 left in the second quarter. Bryant even elicted some cheers in the third quarter, presumably from Lakers fans, when he drove past Celtics guard Avery Bradley for a dunk.But then Bryant started feeling pain in his surgically repaired right shoulder. He sat on the bench as he iced it. Bryant conceded afterwards that he and the Lakers’ training staff “got to be a little bit more aggressive” with his treatment. But in typical Bryant fashion, he pushed through it. The crowd then went silent when Bryant hit a 3-pointer to give the Lakers a 107-102 lead with 1:40 left. “I was thinking of using as much legs as possible,” Bryant said. “I couldn’t really use my shoulder too much. I was like, ‘I really got to get my legs under this shot. Really jump forward on this shot.’ ”The shot sank into the basket, leading Bryant to think, “ ‘Thank God.’ ”“It was very important,” Bryant said. “I wouldn’t have heard the end of it. It definitely felt good to hit that shot.”It definitely felt good for Bryant after what happened on the next possession. After Bryant grabbed a rebound, the Celtics intentionally fouled Brandon Bass, leading to Lakers and Celtics fanbases trying outduel each other with Bryant chants and jeers. Bryant’s teammates may have taken over over the game, including double-digit efforts from Jordan Clarkson (24 points on 10-of-15 shooting), Lou Williams (19 points on 7-of-9 shooting), D’Angelo Russell (16 points, six rebounds and three assists) and Julius Randle (15 points, 12 rebounds). After Bryant missed a 3-pointer and a pull-up jumper, Clarkson performed a Bryant-like pump fake on Boston guard Isaiah Thomas before sinking a jumper. Though he missed the foul shot, Clarkson drove for a layup to give the Lakers a 104-100 lead with 2:26 left.Not surprisingly, Bryant still commanded the attention on what he considered the most significant part of his farewell tour. “If I could chant for them, I would,” Bryant said, mindful of a rivalry that has produced a combined 33 NBA championships. “I don’t think the fans here really understood how much they drove me.”It happened many times.When the Celtics acquired Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in the 2007 offseason, Bryant suddenly thought of a possible Lakers-Celtics Finals matchup unfolding for the first time since 1987. But then the Lakers lost to Boston in the 2008 NBA Finals in six games. The Garden taunted Bryant with endless loops of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin” and the Dropkick Murphys’ “I’m Shipping Up to Boston amid the Lakers’ Game 6 series-clinching loss to the Celtics in the 2008 NBA Finals. Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, interrupted Bryant while he was showering and promised him he would help him beat the Celtics. Once the Lakers trailed Boston 3-2 in the 2010 NBA Finals, Bryant recalled that he let down his serious demeanor and “started laughing” in the locker room.“The were guys were looking at me like, ‘What’s wrong, we are one game from losing!,’ ” Bryant recalled. “I just said, ‘Guys, listen they kicked our butt. That’s pretty funny. Secondly, if we started the season and they told us that all we had to do was go home and two games to be NBA Champions, would you take that deal?’”Everyone answered yes. That’s exactly what happened as the Lakers fulfilled World Peace’s promise as they overcame a 13-point deficit in Game 7.“‘I have no idea how we are going to figure this thing out, but we are going to figure this thing out,’” Bryant recalled saying. “We just buckled down, we trusted each other and went out and grinded it out.”A similar setting happened on Wednesday against Boston as the Garden played ‘Dropkick Murphy’s’ “I’m Shipping up to Boston” midway through the fourth quarter. “I was so happy when that song came on,” Bryant said. “I thought they were gonna play it at the start of the game. I was kinda looking for it. That’s probably what threw me off at the start of the game.”After all, Bryant listened to Journey’ and ‘Dropkick Murphys’ endlessly as motivation before winning back-to-back championships against Orlando (2009) and Boston (2010). Yet, Bryant chuckled and revealed he did not listen to those songs again before his last stop here. “Nope. I put that on the shelf,” Bryant said. “I don’t need that anymore. I can listen to the song peacefully.”Bryant also planned to become peaceful during the game, his steely competitive side taking a backseat for nostalgia during his last time here.“I’ll gaze up, I’ll look at the banners a lot,” Bryant said beforehand. “I’ll scan the crowd a lot and try to soak it all in as much as possible.”A similar setting emerged for Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in his last game here on Dec. 16, 1988. Then, the Celtics fans gave Abdul-Jabbar a 95-second standing ovation. Celtics president Red Auerbach then presented Abdul-Jabbar with a mounted framed slab of the Garden’s parquet floor for winning six NBA championships and remaining the league’s all-time leading scorer. “It was great,” said Scott, one of Abdul-Jabbar’s teammates. “For me, going through that with Kareem and knowing how the fans were every time we came here, I was a little surprised they showed that type of love. But after all the years of being here and playing in this league and knowing how knowledgeable they are about the game of basketball, it didn’t surprise me.”Unlike Abdul-Jabbar, Bryant has not received any public displays of gifts at his request. Bryant was fine with the Celtics presenting him a portion of the Garden’s parquet floor because the gift was given to him privately instead of as part of an elaborate pre-game ceremony. “I’m not used to the applause. It’s quite a compliment,” Bryant said. “I’ve come to really enjoy it. It’s different now to have perspective and bring my head above water and appreciate, not my career, but appreciate the fans and the support and the criticism, because it helped drive me.”Opposing team venues have mostly greeted Bryant with video tributes. The most notable one included the Charlotte Hornets airing a Michael Jordan tribute video in which he praised Bryant for his five NBA championships and third-place standing on the all-time scoring list. “It was really cool for him to do that,” Bryant said of Jordan. “He’s about as social as I am, so for him to take the time to record that message really means a lot.“I think a lot of people have always thought that he and I have always had this rivalry, and it’s the most ridiculous thing. I couldn’t have achieved what I’ve achieved without him being in my corner and being able to call him and pick his brain about things; it was pretty cool for him to record that message.”It was also cool for Bryant soaking in the final moments.Lakers fans yelled “Kobe Bryant” when he made a pair of free throws to give the Lakers a 110-103 lead with 25.8 seconds left. Once the game ended, Bryant stood on the court to bask in the moment some more. “It’s a weird feeling, walking across center court and looking down at that logo,” Bryant said. “Just trying to cherish it as much as possible.”Then Bryant hugged his family, who visited here for the first time and plans to do so more often because of the city’s culture. Bryant also told one of his daughters about how he handled frustration after the 2008 Finals loss to Boston when she cried after losing a postseason softball game. “I said, ‘Listen, it’s fine. You just got to bounce back,” Bryant said. “That’s the kind of profound impact this building has had.”Bryant then hugged Celtics opponents at midcourt. Shortly, Bryant then waved to the crowd before clasping his hands and bowing down in appreciation.After finishing his on-court interview, Bryant then walked through the entrance tunnel and high-fived fans For one last time, Bryant thanked the crowd for cheering for him after once relishing the crowd for endlessly booing him.“It’s just a surreal feeling,” Bryant said. “I wish I could do more to show my gratitude to them. I just try to say thank as much as I possibly could.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
