Default Kobe says next season might be his last

Quote:
Bryant is scheduled to earn a league-high $25 million during the 2015-16 season before his contract expires, according to Basketball Insiders.

"I think it is clear," Kupchak said, per Holmes. "He's on the last year of his deal. There have been no discussions [about playing beyond next season]. He hasn't indicated that he wants to continue to play."

If this is, in fact, Bryant's last year, he'll help operate as a bridge between an old era and one that's just getting started. With No. 2 overall pick D'Angelo Russell in tow, a promising future lies ahead for one of the NBA's most distinguished franchises—even if Kobe won't be scorching the net for much longer.

I just don't see him retiring if we actually have a decent team. He could easily switch to a 2014 Paul Pierce role

Kobe is more likely to abuse his rookies than mentor them. He'll probably be like "**** you, you suck, grab my balls you bitch" or something along those lines.
