Lisa Leslie is arguably the most recognized and greatest women’s basketball player of all-time. Her basketball accomplishments are endless as she won two WNBA championships, three WNBA MVP Awards, four Olympic Gold medals, and was the first female to dunk in a game.
These days Leslie works as a guest commentator on ABC’s Sports Zone and always keeps a close eye on the state of the Los Angeles Lakers. Appearing on CBS Sports’ We Need To Talk, Leslie spoke about the possible retirement of Kobe Bryant saying that she believes this season will be Kobe’s final one.
Leslie said that she believes Kobe doesn’t want to end his career on a bad note with injuries ruining each of his last three seasons and that he wants to finish strong.
Kobe’s possible retirement is one of the biggest questions of the off-season. General Manager Mitch Kupchak has said that Kobe indicated that this would be his last year, but head coach Byron Scott isn’t quite sold on that.
