With Bryant’s playing days potentially coming to an end next summer, many have begun to wonder what’s next for the future Hall of Famer. Kobe has been asked a few times over the years whether he’d consider coaching and downplayed the notion on more than one occasion.

Although Bryant may enjoy mentoring teammates and seeing young players progress, the five-time NBA champion obviously doesn’t have the patience to deal with egos that rival his own. This stance may change in the future with Kobe possibly getting the itch to close or being involved in the game in some form or another, but as of right now, he clearly has no desire to coach in the NBA.
