Kobe Tweets Response to Retirement Questions After Announcement

There was a lot of hype heading into the Sports Spectacular event on Sunday night. While it wasn’t expected to be much of a splash, rumors started circulating (none of which had much credence) that Bryant was announcing his retirement.

While nobody realistically thought Bryant was going to announce his retirement via closed circuit television at a charitable event, Kobe still addressed the retirement rumors on Twitter after the event.

In typical Kobe fashion, he kept the fans on the edge of their seats until the very end before announcing his true intentions.

So while Kobe isn’t ready to hang up his shorts quite yet, he will be doing whatever he can to combat homelessness in L.A., which is what his announcement ended up being on Sunday.
