With the worst season in franchise history coming to an end for the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night, Kobe Bryant has already moved on by jumping on a plane to France with his family. Kobe hasn’t been happy about the way the season came to fruition with the team failing to live up to expectations and dealing with injuries throughout the entire process.
Shortly after the news of Kobe heading to France, the five-time NBA champion sent out this tweet to his followers about the worst season he’s ever been a part of:

Fortunately for Kobe, the veteran guard is under contract for another two seasons after signing a lucrative contract extension back in November. Although Kobe will be on the books for another two years, there’s no guarantee the Lakers will be able to rebound and contend in a highly competitive Western Conference before he retires.
The Lakers will have a considerable amount of cap space this summer and will also have a high pick in the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft. Change will almost certainly be on the horizon as Mitch Kupchak and company to rebuild as quickly as possible.
