The 40-year-old wrote: "Tonight will be full of emotions, happy ones & and sad ones but we celebrate the career of one of the game's greatest players and a true LAKER ... It's been an honour watching this man win championships and to have done it in style just the way this city expects... Easier said than done... Congrats my friend on a career that many people dream of...."
