The 20-year pro basketball career of Kobe Bryant concludes tonight in Los Angeles, and in honor of the occasion, Nike has unveiled a new short film, "The Conductor." Directed by Mark Romanek and developed in partnership with Wieden+Kennedy Portland, the film shows Kobe playfully orchestrating a symphony of cheers and jeers, reflecting the Mamba's polarizing effect on fans, players and coaches alike. Check it out below, and look for cameos from Hall-of-Fame coach Phil Jackson, 10-time All-Star and Los Angeles native Paul Pierce, and former world champion Rasheed Wallace.
