Kobe Bryant Weighs In On Dennis Rodman’s North Korean Visit
(WAOK) — Kobe Bryant is remaining open-minded about Dennis Rodman’s possible North Korean peace mission. He tells ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” it’s “a crazy world” and “you never know” what could happen. But the Los Angeles Lakers star admits he hasn’t received any invitations from North Korean President Kim Jong Un.
Bryant adds that despite his team’s rough season he’s still proud to be a Laker, and still has faith in the organization. He also says he’s “not going anywhere,” and plans to end his playing career “with a Lakers uniform.” But Kobe says this season has been the hardest for him physically, and he admits his playing days are numbered. While he isn’t announcing his retirement just yet, he says “it’ll be soon.” The Lakers’ next game will be in L.A. against the Chicago Bulls, airing on ABC Sunday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. Eastern.
