One of the biggest legends in sports history has retired, but he is still getting some love from his famous fans. And, for some reason, that is really wrong to some people.

NBA and Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant has said goodbye to basketball after a stellar, unforgettable 20-year career with the same team. Kobe was a unique player and personality in every sense of the word, but his talents on the court earned him five championship and millions of admirers.

His farewell game, on Wednesday against the Utah Jazz, was one for the ages. The Black Mamba did what the Black Mamba does: he shot a lot, and he scored a lot. So he finished with an incredible 60 points and 50 shots, the most Kobe Bryant way possible to end his career.

Bryant is such a legend he's conquered fans outside of basketball. One of those is Barcelona superstar Neymar Jr., who tweeted a really nice honor to Kobe:

The problem with this tweet for a lot of internet Barcelona fans is that, in their opinion, Neymar was supposed to be in his bedroom crying and mourning the loss to Atlético Madrid, completely oblivious to the rest of the world. By tweeting, Neymar is not following the rules of what to do after losing a football match, and he should be ashamed of himself for that.

I really hope none of those fans is reading this, because to you I say: YOU ARE DUMB. Sorry, not sorry. Let the guy live his life.
