Kobe Bryant On Season: ‘Appreciate It Now Because Revenge Is Sweet’

The end is drawing near for Kobe Bryant and the five-time NBA champion is well aware of that fact. Kobe made an appearance at Westfield Culver City Mall to promote his new shoe, Kobe 9 Elite, and talked about the immediate future with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Although there’s no telling what kind of player Kobe will be once finally back on the floor for the Lakers, the future Hall of Famer believes next season will be nothing like the current one according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

At this point in time, Kobe returning this season seems doubtful. Although Kobe has promised to get back on the floor at some point before the end of the season, shutting it down and getting his body right for the 2014-15 campaign appears to be the most likely scenario.

Before going down with the knee fracture in December, Kobe began to start showing signs of his former self. Unfortunately, Kobe only lasted six games before suffering the knee injury and now can only sit and watch as the Lakers continue to struggle.

The future remains uncertain for the Lakers as there’s bound to plenty changes made in the off-season. Kobe may have signed a lucrative two-year contract extension, but Pau Gasol appears to be on his way out through free agency while many of the players on the current squad are on one-year deals and are set to expire this summer.

It’ll be interesting to see what moves are made in this summer in order to rebuild around the aging superstar.
