Kobe Bryant Wants to Remain With Lakers For Life

In a recent interview with Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports Kobe Bryant discussed some of the recent speculation that he may demand a trade from the Lakers.

When Bryant was asked the question of whether or not he wanted to remain with the Lakers he answered in the affirmative.

“I’ve been here for 16 years. I’m going to up and leave now?”
