Everyone seems to think this is Kobe’s last season. Trying to return from an ankle injury, Kobe hurt is knee. After playing six games in 10 days, the fourth-leading scorer in NBA history is out again until February or longer. This has Kobe fans talking. Is it time for him to retire. Kobe already has five rings. Is he still chasing a sixth? Is he set out to grab one more than MJ and bow out with seven? Hmmm.. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. After watching countless interviews of Kobe introducing his signature Nike Basketball shoe to the world, I started to think. If Kobe did decide to retire I can definitely see him staying on with Nike as a design performance consultant of some sort. Kobe’s passion and desire to push design and function forward always stood out to me. What do you guys think?
