Scott said he doesn’t believe Bryant will retire, not with an injury ending his career. “I don’t see Kobe as the type of guy who wants to leave his legacy on these terms,” Scott said. “I think he wants to go out on his own terms. We just have to wait and see.” Orange County Register
Coach Byron Scott said Monday that Bryant was in high spirits when they spoke Monday morning, adding that he “probably sounded worse than (Bryant) did. We all know how tough he is and he’s a trooper.” Scott said he also expects the Lakers guard to return to the court next season. “I think he’s already proven that with the Achilles’ last year,” Scott said. “Everybody said he was done and the first month of the season, he proved to everybody that he still has a lot left in the tank and I think he still has that hunger and competitive nature and will prove it again. At times, we don’t appreciate all the stuff he has been able to accomplish or appreciate how tough he is and all the things he’s come back with.” Orange County Register
