[Guide] on January 19, according to the “Lakers Insider Network” report, today the head of the Lakers star Kobe Bryant
Talking about the topic of retirement again, head coach Byron Scott said he had never talked to Kobe about it, but he would understand Flyman’s decision anyway.
Just imagine what kind of team the Lakers would be without Kobe?
Nick Young said bluntly: Without him, we are finished!
Kobe said frankly in an interview today that he had considered retiring after the end of this season, and this idea still exists.
“If I told you that I never had such an idea (note, referring to retiring after the end of this season), then I must be lying.” Bryant said.
“Actually I still have my doubts about it. All in all, anything is possible. I feel pain all over my body, this feeling is tormenting me all the time, it is absolutely terrible. Well, what I want to say
Yeah, if I don’t want to go on, then I won’t fight anymore.”
Kobe Bryant appeared in the Lakers training hall today, but he did not accept media interviews after the training, but Scott talked about his views.
“At some point, it crossed our minds. I’m open to something that makes sense, and I’m sure it’s crossed my mind more than once,” Scott said.
To his initial reaction, “We haven’t talked about that yet. Like I said, it’s game-for-play and we’ll see. I think he’ll sort it out at some point,
And this season he said it and he did it.”
Scott was also a player. He also had the experience of deciding to retire, so he also understood Kobe’s decision very well.
“First of all, it’s a tough decision. When you love the game like Kobe, it’s hard to say to yourself, ‘It’s over,'” Scott said. “My mental process is, I can’t
Playing again, my body can’t take it anymore, I can’t play the way I want to. That’s when you start thinking about doing other things in your life that you want to do.”
In the previous contest with the Cavaliers, Kobe sent out 17 assists, which is a new high in his career.
However, in the critical final quarter, Kobe sat on the bench for a long time before being dispatched by coach Scott.
Although Kobe himself is also looking forward to playing to help the team, it has to be admitted that his body sometimes really doesn’t work.
In fact, after that game, Kobe said frankly, “If five years ago, I would have the ability to provoke the entire team, but now I can’t.” Kobe did not receive treatment or training today.
Will travel with the team away, but this does not mean that his playing time will increase.
Kobe dedicated his 19-year career to the Lakers, and he also brought many honors to the Lakers.
Therefore, it is difficult to imagine what the Lakers would look like without Kobe.
“It’s too tough. I know it’s hard for him to make such a decision, but we obviously didn’t realize the importance of Kobe here.” Singles Young said, “Once he is gone, then everything is over. When
Once he’s gone, you realize how great he is and how lucky you are to be on the court with him.”
