During recent interviews Kobe Bryant has been hinting at an early retirement. He says, “I've been playing for 17 years now, so next year will be my 17th and then, when I'm 35, it will be my 18th year in the league. I mean that's a long time to be playing. It will be the last year in my contract, so I don't know. I don't know if I'll play any longer than that."
Even though he has had wrist issues the past two seasons, Kobe claims it isn’t a health related issue, but he questions “It's about 'Do I want to do it? Do I have that hunger to continue to prepare at a high level?"
If Kobe does decide to retire he has left a mark in the NBA with 5 championship rings, 14 trips to All Star games, and 2 Olympic gold medals. Are you ready to see Kobe go?
