Kobe Bryant has had a Hall of Fame career. When Kobe retires he will be a first ballot Hall of Famer and one of the greatest to play the game of basketball. The 5 time NBA Champion has been playing professional basketball for the past 20 years with the Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe has set the all-time record for a player’s tenure with a professional team in the NBA. His time with the Lakers has been a great partnership.
Kobe has won 5 Championships, the MVP Award, scoring titles and much more. But the age of 37, after playing through so many injuries, has Father Time caught up with him?
The 2015-2016 NBA season has begun and already we have seen Kobe out of rhythm. Kobe has given himself some harsh criticism saying “I’m the 200th best player in the league right now, I freaking suck.” We all know that Kobe does not “suck” as he would say, but we can say the game is different for him now. Kobe is learning that he can no longer do what he use to do. The All-Star shooting guard is playing against his fellow NBA competitors, but he is also playing against Father Time. It will be exciting to see how he responds to this challenge.
