Watch Kobe Bryant conduct a symphony of haters in new Nike commercial

New, comments

We've reached peak Kobe.

Kobe Bryant has been hated in 28 road arenas throughout his career (the road games against the Clippers where Lakers fans fill Staples Center don't count). Bryant has likely heard every variation of fan taunts and jeers over his 20-year career.

His last Nike commercial as an active player pokes fun at this fact, with Bryant conducting a song featuring some angry fans singing to him, along with Rasheed Wallace, Paul Pierce, and even Phil Jackson kicking things off. The whole thing put together makes it the most fitting Kobe commercial since his famous "Kobe System" ads. Give it a watch:

Excellent work from Nike and Kobe. Hopefully the end of Bryant's career doesn't mean the end of ads like this.
