Re: why cant kobe play till he's 50?
What you don't see is the recovery time. Trust me, right now guys like Kobe and Garnett aren't jumping out of bed with a spring in their step after game day. The amount of work to maintain and recover their bodies is only going to get harder over the next 5 years. To go another 10 after that will be interminable for them. Kobe isn't going to hobble around his house so he can play another 10 unnecessary and largely unproductive years.
