Kobe Bryant Retiring After This Season

Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant announced Sunday that this will be his last season in the NBA.

“I’m ready to let you go,” Bryant said in a poem, titled “Dear Basketball,” published on thePlayers’ Tribune.

There has been speculation for months whether the 2015-2016 season would be his last.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver called Bryant “one of the greatest players in the history of our game” in a statement:

The 37-year-old Bryant is a 20-year NBA veteran and a five-time champion. He is currently third in all-time points scored, behind only Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
