Kobe Bryant's Lakers jerseys went up into the rafters at Staples Center last night during a special retirement ceremony that took place in front of a number of NBA legends and celebrities including Shaq, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Allen Iverson.

Current Lakers players and coaches, as well as the Golden State Warriors, also remained on the court for the ceremony which took place during halftime of last night's overtime thriller.

Several other current and former NBA stars, who couldn't be in attendance to witness the official retirement of #8 and #24, took to social media to share their thoughts about Kobe and his legacy.
