Snoop Dogg gives Kobe Bryant a Lakers-themed convertible

LOS ANGELES (AP) Kobe Bryant has received a one-of-a-kind retirement gift from rapper Snoop Dogg: a Los Angeles Lakers-themed convertible.

Bryant retired from the Lakers in April after 20 seasons in L.A. He posted a picture on Twitter of him and Snoop standing by the purple and gold car Wednesday.

Snoop Dogg put up some shots of the car on Instagram . Its hood features pictures of Bryant alongside other Lakers greats like Magic Johnson, James Worthy and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. But the biggest picture is one of Snoop himself in a Lakers jersey.

The rapper is a well-known Lakers fanatic. He once showed off his personal Lakers-themed basketball court during a tour of his home on ''MTV Cribs.''
