Kobe got a unique video tribute from the Bulls for his starting lineup introduction.

Special video introductions have become the standard for Kobe Bryant's final stops in various road arenas as his farewell tour chugs along, and the Los Angeles Lakers' Sunday night visit to the Chicago Bulls was no different. The Bulls prepared a special intro video for Kobe, featuring his former teammate Pau Gasol introducing him as a starter in the final time the two will share a basketball court together:

This clip basically serves as a teaser for the Pau-narrated Kobe documentary that Lakers fans never knew they wanted until today. Bulls fans gave Bryant a nice ovation, and it continues to be cool to see visiting crowds show appreciation for Bryant in his 20th and final season.
