Lakers Gave Fans Strange Toy Helicopters During Kobe Bryant’s Last Game

Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game was a much-anticipated event, so it only made sense that there were plenty of bells and whistles in and around Staples Center to celebrate the Black Mamba’s retirement.

Both of Kobe’s numbers, 8 and 24, were adorned on the floor during the game, and there even was a mural outside of the building where fans could write farewell messages.

There also were plenty of fan giveaways.

All fans in attendance received Kobe T-shirts, but the folks who coughed up their wallets and sat courtside got a whole prize pack, featuring hats, shoes, more shirts and … something called a Kobe ROBOJAM figure.

If you’re not familiar with what a Kobe ROBOJAM figure is, fret not. It’s basically a Kobe action figure that transforms into a toy helicopter.

Makes sense when you consider Kobe often takes helicopters to home games.

Considering the figure looks absolutely nothing like Kobe, we figure this is one of those giveaways that fans will be putting up on eBay as soon as they can.
