Kobe can see himself playing basketball for a lot more years…

L.A. Times: Bryant also explained why he let O’Neal, 36, take the MVP trophy.

“You don’t know how many years he’s going to be playing,” he said. “I’ve still got another six, seven, eight years to go. I felt it was the right thing to do.”

    Kobe will probably played next 8 years. And he will win 2 or 3 more ring.

    that would be great to see him continue to play for that long

    Kobe don’t need the trophy….as long as that achievement is recorded in the history books, the trophy don’t matter. Besides, that was probably Shaq’s last All-Star game.

    May Kobe have the strength to play at least 10 more years.

    Guess who ain’t comin back to the Lakers soon? LOL!

    That’s Kobe’s way of saying “Yo Shaq, that’s the last hardware that you’ll be sharin with me!”

    Nice gesture from KOBE. Thta’s what i have in my mind when KOBE
    let Shaq bring home the trophy. Even Shaq himself said that this year might be his last year to play for the ALL STAR GAME. Congratulation KOBE
