Before final game in Philly, Kobe Bryant spotted at cheesesteak joint

On the eve of his final game in his hometown, Lakers star Kobe Bryant stopped by a cheesesteak shop near St. Joseph's University for a snack.

According to several photos posted on social media, Bryant was at Larry's Steaks on N. 54th Street near City Avenue.




Larry's is one of Bryant's favorite spots near his old neighborhood and he has stopped by the joint before games in Philly in the past.

Bryant, 37, recently announced he will be retiring at the end of this season.

The Philly native will play his final game in the city Tuesday night against the still winless Sixers.

When asked by a 6ABC reporter outside the restaurant if the game would be sentimental, he said "absolutely."
