What does Kobe Bryant dislike about his farewell tour? "Well, that we suck," the Los Angeles Lakers icon said of his 11-44 team. "That's tough. All joking aside, just being able to say thank you to the fans, it's hard for me to express how much the fans have meant to me, it really is. It's been such a driving force to come into places, these hostile environments and be booed and be the enemy, that stuff drove me for so many years and it's very hard for me to be able to put into words how much I appreciated that. The best I can do is to go out and play, even though physically I feel like crap, and say thank you as much as I can to them. I really appreciate the opportunity to be able to do that."
