Tweet shows video game graphics from Kobe Bryant’s debut to now

Kobe Bryant is one of the best basketball players in history and he is just a few games away from wrapping up a Hall of Fame career. He has been showered with gifts and adoration all season long and his career has been honored in many ways.

Bryant came into the league as the 13th pick in the 1996 NBA Draft.

To give a more unique look at Kobe Bryant’s illustrious career, one user on Twitter shows how much video game graphics have changed since “Black Mamba” started his career.

That is actually pretty funny, but also a telling sign of how much technology has changed in just 20 years. I just wonder if Kobe Bryant ever played himself in any of these video games.

He might not have, but I am sure his image will live on in these games for the rest of time. His career draws to a close with a match up against the Houston Rockets tomorrow, the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday, and the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.
