Kobe Bryant has gone back and forth so many different times on when he will finally decide to retire. He just passed Wilt Chamberlain the other night for 4th all-time in scoring and next on that list is Michael Jordan, of course.
You absolutely know he wants to pass Michael but will that be as far as he gets? Kobe recently said that next year will be his last. Not calling the man a liar but he strikes me as wanting to leave the game as the all-time leading scorer. Hey, why stop now, Kobe?
Is your sense that next season will be your last?
“As I sit here right now, yeah.”
Is there anything the Lakers can say that would make it more likely you played beyond next season?
“No,” Bryant told NBA.com. “It’s my decision. It’s really about what I want to do, if I want to train and be psychotic with my training. That’s what it comes down to. It’s really how I’m feeling physically.”
