INDIANAPOLIS -- Kobe Bryant has been on a retirement tour for the entirety of the 2016 season, and his final game in Indianapolis was played Monday night.

Indiana Pacers small forward Paul George looked up to Kobe when he was young and dreaming of being in the NBA, so for him, this was just as special.

Bryant, who has received tributes from teams across the league as he's gone from place to place, turned the tables on George by offering him a pair of shoes as a parting gift. 

Classy, Kobe.

Take a look at the post from the Pacers' Facebook page:
