Kobe Byrant visited Chicago for the final time in his NBA career on Sunday night, and there to greet him was a packed United Center, his old friend and teammate Pau Gasol and Derrick Rose’s adorable son P.J.
P.J. first burst into the national spotlight with some hilarious faces in a postgame conference during last season’s playoffs, which his father immortalized in T-shirt form this season, and know he is hanging out with the Black Mamba.
The Bulls bested Los Angeles 126–115 with Bryant scoring 22 points and Rose putting in 24.
