Kobe Bryant is slowly making his transition away from the game of basketball, and with that, he’s played his last game as an Olympian.
Monday evening before the Lakers last second loss to the Bulls, Bryant told the media that he would not play for Team USA in the 2016 Olympics, but he would travel to Rio to attend the games and cheer on Pau Gasol, who plays internationally for Spain.
Kobe says he won't play in the 2016 Olympics, but he might attend as a spectator to "see Pau win another silver medal"
