Kobe Bryant Announces He’ll Retire At End of Season
Yet Another Kobe Bryant Airball Provided The Exclamation Point On Sunday’s Retirement Announcement (Video)
On Sunday, NBA legend Kobe Bryant announced that he will retire at the end of the 2015-16 season.
The news hardly came as a shock to basketball fans. Bryant is 37 and has been sidelined by numerous injuries in recent years. More importantly, his current season has been absolutely abysmal by almost any standard, let alone those of the Black Mamba. The guy is averaging a respectable 15.5 points per game, but he’s doing it by shooting just .305 from the field and .202 from beyond the arc.
Kobe’s performance against the Pacers on Sunday only put an exclamation point on his retirement announcement. He went 4-for-20 from the field and 2-for-7 from three-point range.
The lowlight? Yet another Kobe Bryant airball—this time with the Lakers down three and only 10.5 seconds left in the game:
Man that is hard to watch. Maybe Kobe should just retire at the All-Star Game.
