Before Kobe Bryant ruptured his Achilles tendon during Friday’s game versus the Golden State Warriors, some in the media were already speculating about what the NBA star would do once he retired.
Now with news that Bryant will miss the remainder of the season and will be sidelined for six to nine months, many wonder if that retirement will come sooner than expected.
But, HipHollywood caught up with Bryant before the near career ending injury, and found out that his retirement plans may still include basketball, just not in the U.S.
“I’ll definitely go to Italy for something just because that’s where I grew up and still have friends there, so I’ll definitely be out there doing something,” Kobe revealed. “I have started thinking about it, but that is the challenge when you retire what can you do after.”
