Kobe Bryant Talks Retirement

Speaking with CBSSports.com after practice, Bryant conceded that the finish line and the end of his current contract will be one in the same. Bryant has two years left, and though he did point out, “One can never be too sure,” he made it clear that he probably wouldn’t play beyond the 2013-14 season, which would be his 18th season.

Kobe Bryant:
“It’s just that three more years seems like a really long time to continue to stay at a high, high level of training and preparation and health. That’s a lot of years. For a guard? That’s a lot of years.”
