Bryant’s last day as a Los Angeles Laker has been dubbed “Mamba Day” by Nike, with many of their contracted athletes sporting custom black and gold shoes to honor the player’s retirement.

I wish today wasn’t real. I encourage you to let go and Let God tonight! We are all so very proud of you Bean, you have NOTHING to prove!!! You’re The Greatest!!!!! There will never be another like you. God Bless you and your family.”

Other notable names honoring Bryant include President Bill Clinton, who wrote, “Have a great night, @kobebryant! Thanks for the memories. Looking forward to the future. #MambaDay.” Larry King tweeted, “I’ve known @kobebryant for years. He’s a great talent & a great guy. I’ll miss his presence on the court. Thank you, KB. #MambaDay.” Maria Shriver shared, “My son says @kobebryant has played basketball his entire life & he doesn’t know what to do w/ himself now that he’s retiring I don’t either!”
