Kobe will turn 30 a day before he will help team USA bring home the Gold. Recently, Kobe talked about his age and how he feels at this point in his life/career.

MiamiHeattrky: Kobe Bryant turns 30 on Aug. 23 – the day before the gold medal game. He said that he doesn’t feel like an old man just yet. “I feel younger this year than I did last summer,” Bryant said.  Asked why, Bryant said, “I have no idea. I’m fine wine, baby.”

Bryant did express some disappointment that he won’t get to celebrate his milestone birthday with his daughters, Natalia and Gianna, who will be in the United States. “That’ll be my first birthday away from my kids – obviously, since they’ve been born. Those are sacrifices we’ve made for our country,” Bryant said, adding that it’s good that he likes his teammates. ‘They become your extended family. This is the summer where we make sacrifices, our families make sacrifices, in terms of being away from home and us banding together as brothers.”
