Cavaliers fans cheered for Kobe Bryant, even against LeBron James

It was an emotional game on Wednesday as the Lakers visited the Cleveland Cavaliers for the final time this season. More importantly, this was Kobe Bryant's last time visiting the Cavs. The night didn't begin with the typical jeers. Instead Bryant was celebrated from the start, complete with Kobe chants.

There was even a moment late in the game when Kobe went up against LeBron, maneuvered around the Cavs' star, and scored in front a roaring Cleveland crowd actively rooting for him.

After Kobe went to the bench for one final time in Cleveland, the two MVPs embraced for one last hug.
