Expect the Philadelphia fans to vocal ,rude and cheerful in Kobe’s last appearance .Based on the past 15 years, there could be boos every time the former Lower Merion High School star touches the ball. But Bryant, who announced Sunday he plans to retire at the end of his 20th season, will undoubtedly hear some cheers from the Philly faithful in his final stop at the Wells Fargo Center.

Tuesday and Wednesday – Flash/Arrow  Crossover Event: This time the heroes of Starling City and Central City unite to take on the nefarious Vandal Savage (Casper Crump), who we know will play a big antagonistic role on The CW’s upcoming spinoff series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
