Taylor Swift, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and more thank Kobe Bryant for playing for the Lakers

Talent respects talent, no matter the field.

Kobe Bryant's historic 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers came to a close on Wednesday night. Bryant dropped 60 points in an unforgettable final game, but arguably just as memorable as Bryant's play was the pageantry and spectacle with which it was presented.

Bryant's last game featured tribute videos featuring former teammates and Lakers legends, but it wouldn't be a truly Los Angeles goodbye without a dose of extra pizzaz. That extra something special came in a tribute video for Bryant featuring "thank you's" from famous fans like Snoop Dogg, Taylor Swift, Ice Cube, Flea, and more:

Bryant has always spoken about how much he respects talent and work ethic no matter a person's chosen field, so he surely appreciated getting praised for his craft by such successful musicians.

In addition to taking part in the video, Snoop Dogg was in attendance on Wednesday night, and the rapper seemed to be enjoying what he saw from Kobe:

One day, hopefully we can all enjoy something as much as Snoop enjoys watching Kobe.
