Kobe Bryant’s final game in the NBA has already been canonized as one of the many memorable moments of the Lakers legend's career, with the veteran putting in 60 points while leading Los Angeles to a come-from-behind victory over the Jazz.

While Bryant was showing off his basketball virtuosity one last time, another superstar was flashing some decent ball-handling skills deep in the bowels of the Staples Center, as Jay Z put on a quick dribbling show with a game ball.
