Kobe Bryant was asked on Wednesday what he thinks about in the offseason, and if he gets philosophical about how much time he has left in his career:
“No…No…I don’t think about that at all. What I think about is shutting up those Mo Fo’s that think I’m done…that’s what I think about!” Bryant said.
In 10 games this postseason Bryant averaged 22.8 points per game, which was his lowest since the 98-99 playoff run.
His rebounds and assist marked his lowest since 97-98. However, it is worth mentioning that Kobe also played the least amount of minutes this postseason then he has since 97-98 (2nd year in league).
Bryant is far from done, as he moved into 6th place for all-time in scoring during the regular season, and passed Shaq this postseason for 3rd in all-time playoff scoring
He also recently tied the all time record for most selections to the NBA All-Defensive First Team. He is now tied with Michael Jordan, Gary Payton, and Kevin Garnett as the only players to be named to the All-Defensive First Team nine times.
