Kobe Bryant went on Ellen to have the people worship at his feet. Which is pretty much all anyone does with Kobe when they interview him.
He of course was asked about his final game. A game where he took 50 shots in order to become the oldest player in NBA history to hit 60 points.
I'm not sure if telling himself not to suck really worked. 60 points is 60 point even if you kind of sucked by launching 50 shots.
