#FansNBA: Kobe To Retire

Heading into the 2015-2016 season, Kobe Bryant will enter his last year of his two year contract.image Today, Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak interviewed with SiriusXM  NBA Radio with ESPN’s Baxter Holmes. Kupchak mention that he spoke to  Kobe about his last season. Kupchak says, “He (Kobe) has indicated to me  that this is it.” In March, Jeanie Buss, Lakers part-owner and President, got  emotional when thinking of failing  to honor Magic Johnson when he decided  to retire. Jeanie said Kobe will be honored this upcoming season with a  farewell tour.
I think we all knew that Kobe would be enter into retirement soon but when  the news hits, it’s still shocking. I know for myself this is so unreal. I don’t think Kobe will confirm this until the end of the season but it is time for him to leave. 20 seasons in and coming off back to back injuries. His obsession with chasing MJ came a bit short but he is still one of the best to grace the court of the NBA.
