    Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant delivered a Hollywood ending as the curtain came down on his glittering 20-year NBA career on Wednesday in a blockbuster finale.

    On a night of searing emotion at a packed Staples Center Josh Doctson Jersey , the 37-year-old signed off with a mammoth 60 points, including a final burst of scoring to inspire a 101-96 comeback victory over the Utah Jazz.

    A galaxy of A-list celebrities - from Jack Nicholson to David Beckham - roared their approval from courtside as Bryant exited with a perfectly scripted final act.

    ""Man, I can't believe how fast 20 years went by, this is crazy,"" Bryant told his adoring fans. ""What can I say? Mamba out.""

    A sell-out crowd of 19,060 fans had packed into the Staples Center to watch Bryant lace up for the 1,566th and last time.

    Tickets for the game were the most expensive in basketball history, according to online exchange StubHub, which sold one pair of courtside seats for a staggering $27,500 each.

    Lakers legend Magic Johnson had acted as master of ceremonies for a lengthy pre-game tribute that featured video messages from some of the NBA's most recognizable figures.

    ""We are here to celebrate greatness for 20 years,"" Johnson told the crowd.

    ""He's not only a great and unbelievable sports icon but he's already the greatest to wear the purple and gold.""

    Oscar-winning actor Nicholson - a regular presence at courtside during the Bryant era - wrapped up a montage of video messages.

    ""Kobe, goodbye, I think I might retire with you, I'm not sure,"" said Nicholson.

    Soccer icon Beckham meanwhile expressed delight at the manner of Bryant's departure.

    ""Everyone wanted him to go out like this,"" Beckham said. ""The way he's gone out tonight is incredible.""

    Excitement for Bryant's farewell game had built throughout the day, with the streets surrounding the Staples Center transformed into a sea of purple and gold as thousands of fans thronged the area.

    Los Angeles transport officials meanwhile got into the spirit of celebration, renaming a metro station near the Staples Center ""Kobe Station"" for the day.

    On Twitter, fans were invited to share their memories under the trending hashtag ""#MambaDay,"" a reference to Bryant's ""Black Mamba"" nickname.


    SEOUL, Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's consumer price inflation hit the highest in over five years as heavy rain and heat wave increased vegetable prices, a government report showed Friday.

    Consumer prices rose 2.6 percent in August from a year earlier, the highest increase since April 2012, according to Statistics Korea.

    BEIJING, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- China's non-manufacturing sector expanded at a slightly slower pace in August, official data showed Thursday.

    The non-manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) came in at 53.4 in August, down from 54.5 in July, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

    A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a reading below that reflects contraction.

    "Though at a slower pace, the performance of China's non-manufacturing sector continues to maintain robust momentum," said NBS senior statistician Zhao Qinghe.

    Zhao attributed the slower expansion to rainstorms and floods in certain regions that affected the construction industry.

    The service sector, which accounted for more than half of the country's gross domestic product (GDP) last year, saw slower expansion in August, with the index standing at 52.6, down from 53.1 in July.

    New business orders came in at 50.3 in August, up from 50.2 in July, staying above 50 for the fourth straight month.
