Before the final game of his career, the Lakers organization presented Kobe and Vanessa Bryant with commemorative retirement rings celebrating the Mamba's illustrious career. In between his first and last names on the front of the ring was a bed of 20 diamonds for every season he spent with Lakers. On top of them were a depiction of the Larry O'Brien championship trophy and five larger diamonds for each title he won. On one side, "TWENTY YEARS" sat above a No.8 Lakers jersey along with the years 1996 and 2005, which was the timeframe that he wore the number. Likewise, the other side featured a NO.24 jersey and the years 2006 and 2016. Above that were the words "Black Mamba".
