Wait a minute! The Black Mamba knows how to keep fans on their toes. Lol. First Kobe Bryant’s plan was to retire at 36, then it was at 40 and now he said something in an interview that makes it seem like it may be a lot sooner than we think!
In an interview with T.J. SIMERS at LATIMES:
The shift continues, the Lakers at their worst but Kobe at his best. And so what’s wrong with him? I begin.
“I find myself talking sometimes and I can’t believe what I just said,” he says with a hearty laugh. “Realistically I have only one year left, so I’m trying to enjoy myself.”
But what happened to the inner circle of trust, Kobe admitting, “You were off the reservation,” if you didn’t flatter him?
“I didn’t have time to deal with nonsense,” he says. “I had quite a bit of recovery going on, so I didn’t have time to deal with negative stuff.
“I’ve taken the reins off now. I’m more open, hence Twitter. I’m at peace.”
