If I was Kobe. I will announce that @ age 35 2013-2014 season will be his "Last Dance"
He should call that retirement at age 35 in the summer of 2014.
18 seasons @ 25 ppg ave with 5 rings & 2 FMVP is all-time great
Things Kobe should desperately avoid..
-sign for vet min with MIA or OKC & try to win 6th & 7th ring with LBJ or Durant winning FMVP.
-sign a 2 yrs contract extention to see if he can play til 37 & try & win 6th ring & complete 2 decades of pro-career.
Instead, Kobe should go to Europe & play for italy & win rings there while he still can.
Being a man & winning is more important than playing behind wade, LBJ, durant & COLLECTING rings.
