It's not going to be anything bad guys. I'm sure if Kobe were making THAT announcement, it wouldn't be on an Internet stream.


If that Internet site wanted to get a lot of attention maybe they'd pay a large amount of money for something like this. Idk, I'm just holding my breathe.

Why the would he embellish the fact that this is a "surprise announcement" if it was going to be anything serious related to his career? We would have heard rumblings by now if anything bad came up.

 

It's probably got to do with a new commercial or shoe or something.

Seems like an advertisement thing. Doubt its retirement.

New tattoo, Vanessa is pregnant, he is taking jumpers already, receiving some kind of award (as stated already)...just don't see why he would announce his retirement outside of a major presser.

I agree with the people saying this will be some BS award...

 

But, there is a 1-5% chance it could be retirement, or a Magic situation, or something even worse..

 

99% sure though, some BS announcement that kobe is helping create some publilicity for

He wouldn't say "surprise announcement" if it was an award ceremony or a bad thing like retirement etc.

 

 

I'm gonna predict that this will be an announcement for a documentary of this past season and/or comeback process.

You guys and your frickin' over reacting.


Settle down, it's probably nothing more than some promotional announcement.

A Jason Collins type announcement lol. Oh no sorry that would be Chris Bosh :D. In all seriousness I agree that it likely doesn't have anything to do with retirement. If Kobe goes out he probably goes out on the court from injury or via a parade hopefully.

Its either 2 things a promotion for some charity or something or thats his recovery is ahead of schedule. If it was something huge he would wait for some random live stream.

I was thinking it may be something along the lines of this :laughing:

Smh.

Retirement ? Why would he get surgery, a day after his injury?
