Kobe Bryant's #8 & #24 jerseys were raised into the rafters of the Staples Center last night, and the Black Mamba did one last mic drop. We've got pics of the whole fam, Allen Iverson, Magic Johnson, Kendrick Lamar, Shaq (yes, even him), Kevin & Eniko Hart and more who came out to celebrate inside....

Wife Vanessa Bryant, kiddies Natalia Diamante Bryant, Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, and baby Bianka Bella Bryant were all front and center for Kobe's halftime jersey retirement ceremony at the Staples Center last night.  Both of his #8 and #24 Los Angeles Lakers jerseys were officially raised to the rafters, just one & a half years after Kobe said Mamba Out.

Tons of celebs were there to celebrate with the future Hall of Famer too, from K Dot. to Allen Iverson to The Harts and more.
