Kobe’s quest for his 6th ring is going to be an upheld battle unless there is a major change to the Lakers current roster.
But, Bean isn’t going away any time soon.
Professionally, Bryant is already on it again.
He is believed to be in Germany for another round of innovative treatment on his right knee that was so improved by Peter Wehling’s blood-spinning procedure a year ago at the Orthogen labs in Dusseldorf. Lakers spokesman John Black said the club was unaware of Bryant’s timetable but had been involved in his plans for the treatment again this offseason.
It’s logical Bryant wants to be at his best for Olympic play this summer – and if you know him you know he wants to be at his best already when he reports to USA Basketball camp in Las Vegas in less than a month (July 5) to begin competing in practices with and against Durant, Harden, Russell Westbrook, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James – all of whom can still win this NBA title.
They will have to drag Kobe off the court. I believe he will be playing into his 40s.
