Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant turned 37 today. What better time than now to discuss his future? He is back on the court practicing shooting drills for the first time since tearing the rotator cuff in his right shoulder, as Eric Pincus of The Los Angeles Times writes.
Bryant is in the last year of his current deal, which will pay him $25MM. He isn’t making any definitive statements about whether he’ll retire after this coming season, even though that seems the most likely outcome.
Thus, the question of the day: Depending on how it plays out, what should Kobe Bryant do after this season?
Personally, I’d like to see Bryant hang it up after this season for a few reasons. He’s obviously been limited because of injuries, he has nothing more to prove in the league and another contract — unless it is a one-year deal — would only hurt the Lakers’ rebuilding process more.
