Kobe Bryant Done For Season, Leaves Lakers With Food For Thought


 

This morning it was revealed that Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers all-time leading scorer, would be out for the rest of the 2013-14 season. This announcement didn’t come as a shock to anyone in Laker Nation and had been anticipated for quite awhile. Kobe missed the first 19 games of the regular season while recovering from a Torn Achilles and returned to play in only 6 games before injuring his knee, which ended his season.

The most significant part of today’s announcement was Kobe’s press conference after the news had broken. Here are some of the best quotes from Kobe, who at times seemed annoyed, angry, contrite, and bitter while also utilizing his dry humor to get through the interviews.

Finally, Kobe closed out the day with a tweet of his own for the fans.

As Kobe concluded his interview he said “See you all next year” and gave a fist pump to the room. We hope to see many more of those next season.
