Kobe Bryant is set to light up the NBA court next season. It seems like we will be seeing much of him as he has said that he is 100% ready to take on the new season.
The good news was shared by Bryant through an interview from Brazil while he was seen watching the World Cup. It has been reported that Bryant went back to play for Lakers right after he had his Achilles torned but it only lasted for six games as he suffered tibular fracture. The fracture was suppose to last for only six weeks however, On March 12, 2014, the Lakers ruled Bryant out for the remainder of the season. According to sources he needs more rehab session and would limit his time for the remaining season.
Bryant has started playing for LA Lakers since the start of his NBA Career in 1997 till the present. It was just last November when Bryant signed a two-year contract for the team amounting to $48.5 million. Though some fans retorted that Bryant should have put winning above personal financial gain but Bryant defended his choice saying” Most of us have aspirations for being businessmen when our playing careers are over. But that starts now. You have to be able to wear both hats. You can’t sit up there and say, ‘Well I’m going to take substantially less because there’s public pressure, because all of a sudden, if you don’t take less, you don’t give a crap about winning.’ That’s total bull—-.”
But the 35 year old four time All-Star MVP Awardee said that he only has plans to play two more years. Within that said 2 years, he wanted to play a game in Rio speaking fervently about the environment of the country.
For the rest of his NBA stint we can say that the LA Lakers would definitely rely on the NBA Champion to rank up the career of the team. Two years is still a long way and who knows, Bryant night change his mind and extend his contract with the team or play for another team instead. Everything will be all up to this living legend.
