What can you say about Kobe? There are tons of things you can say about the great Kobe “Black Mamba” Bryant. Some that come to mind are, of course black mamba, second coming of Jordan, one of the G.O.A.T.’s, to name a few. Today the Laker basketball player announced that he would be retiring from the leauge at the end of this is 20th season. I was 14yrs old when Kobe came in to the leauge at the young age of 18, now being 37 and in his 20th season I’m still a fan. In my opnion the game of basketball will not be the same after he leaves. I feel there is no one in the game today who has the passion or the drive or just that will to win as much as Kobe has. He is the last of a dying breed of basketball players that play the way he does. He will be truly missed on the court and in a Laker uniform.
Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers has decided to retire after this season. The 37-year-old Bryant made the announcement in a post on The Players’ Tribune. The decision was not totally unexpected, given that Bryant has said many times in recent weeks that he was considering making his 20th NBA season his last. “This season is all I have left to give,” Bryant said in what he called a letter penned “Dear Basketball.” Tribute Via FortyFiveFresh.
