Kobe Bryant on Countdown to Retirement: ‘I’m Ready’


“One month, 15 games,” (Kobe) Bryant said after the Lakers 90-87 loss to the New York Knicks.

The countdown has been on since Bryant announced his pending retirement in late November. What followed was an endless stream of praise and festivities accompanying nearly every game.

As much as Bryant has seemed to bask in the sort of adulation he hadn’t really experienced as a self-described villain, he revealed Sunday that he isn’t dreading the end.

“I’m ready,” Bryant said.
