During the event, Kobe also spoke about last years as a Laker according to Lakers Nation’s Serena Winters:

Kobe signed a two-year $48.5 million extension with the Lakers last November. The contract is set to expire in 2016 which would mark Kobe’s 20th season with the Lakers. Throughout his Laker career, he has won five NBA Championships and remains on his quest for a sixth ring.

Hopes for the sixth title came up short last season despite having a roster that included new additions Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. Nash found himself injured throughout the year and still feels the effects of those injuries this year. Chemistry issues between Kobe and Dwight put a further dent on the Lakers struggles last season and was seen as a reason why Howard left Los Angeles for Houston in free agency.

Injuries have derailed Kobe and the Lakers this entire season. When Kobe tore his Achilles last April, many people wondered when the Black Mamba would return. Kobe would eventually make his return to the floor on Dec. 8 against the Toronto Raptors and played in five more games before suffering a fractured knee in a matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies. While Kobe remains sidelined, the Lakers see themselves with no playoff hopes and headed toward a top five pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

Despite the grim season, Kobe is looking forward for what the future holds for the Lakers. The Lakers have a chance to select a young and promising talent in June and can get complementary pieces in free agency this summer.

Whatever happens next for the Lakers, Kobe appears ready to take on whatever challenges awaits him when he returns and make the most out of his remaining years in the league.

    To imagine the day when Kobe is no longer on the court is hard to imagine. Growing up watching the guy get drafted and performing like no other and winning all those rings–Man makes you wonder how time blows by. Wonderful times. Makes me feel old thinking about it! The day when he retires, will be a sad yet glorified day.

    Kobe deserves a retirement tour much like the one Kareem got.I Love Kobe.

    • fakerstolakers

      That’s not for the Lakers to decide. Kareem earned it by all the league’s NBA teams unanimously agreeing to do so. Kareem was considered the best Center at the time of his retirement.
      Is Kobe considered the SG?

      • Chrmngblly

        Not true. Most thought he stayed 2 years too long.

        I hope Kobe can be more like Tim Duncan and take a reduced role but still lead the parade. That’s why I would slide him over to the 3 and let him share the spot with Bazemore and Young.

  • fakerstolakers

    Kobe’s 6 th Ring will never be like Magic’s 5th or Jordan’s 6th or Kobe’s 5th.

    It will be like Gary Payton’s or Robert Horry’s.

    And the 6th Ring statistically will not be coming. In two years Lakers will have to be better than Clippers OKC Portland Houston.

    Who is the Realistic Lakers who think that will be happening.

    Kobe can win his 6 th ring if he get on Board with the Heat or the Rockets.

      Gary Payton or Robert horry!??? Your stupid

      • fakerstolakers

        I guess you need to go back to pre-school to learn some language. I know, in Los Angeles it is legal to not speak English.
        Payton is one of all time great. Guess the Lakers fans would not get it.

  • fakerstolakers

    Kobe is hanging out in the NBA as an endorsement commodity for the NBA Nike and the Lakers.

    To the fans, wake up and drink some real coffee or go for a morning jog at Venice beach to clear your head, you guys were an after thought.
