Re: What happens to the NBA after Kobe retires?
The media wont be able to use him as a polarizing persona anymore, but they wont allow Lebron to go without the rival narrative for long. They need it to create the drama to get people to watch. The only question is who they are going to pick? I think they will have snubbed Wade too long by the time Kobe retires for it to be him. Kevin Durant perhaps?
