It is already LA Lakers great, Kobe Bryant’s 20 season in the NBA and yet no one knows if this will be his last year; not even the Los Angeles Lakers great himself.
Lakers are 1-4 this season and things has not gone the way he would like so far; whilst a more frightening situation is he is not sure if it will be his last.
Bryant, who is averaging 16.2 points and shooting just 32.1 percent from the field through five games, tore a rotator cuff in his right shoulder in January and the 37 -year-old is taking longer to recover in between games.
The NBA's third all-time leading scorer has time over time insisted it is too early to decide whether or not he will return for another season or hang up his sneakers when the campaign is over.
The affluent Kobe Bryant is in the final year of his deal with the Lakers and Phil Jackson, his former coach with the Lakers, said he thought Kobe would play past the 2015-16 season, but doubted if he could play for the Los Angeles.
However, the Lakers legend was definitive about not playing for another franchise.
