Looks like The Black Mamba is staying in Los Angeles for two more years.
According to the Lakers official Twitter account, Kobe Bryant and the team have agree to a two-year contract extension.
This ultimately means that Kobe Bryant will finish his career as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.
From General Manager Mitch Kupchak, "This is a very happy day for Lakers fans and for the Lakers organization. We’ve said all along that our priority and hope was to have Kobe finish his career as a Laker, and this should ensure that that happens. To play 20 years in the NBA, and to do so with the same team, is unprecedented, and quite an accomplishment. Most importantly however, it assures us that one of the best players in the world will remain a Laker, bringing us excellent play and excitement for years to come.”
There is still no official word on when Kobe Bryant will return to the floor, but we know that time is coming soon -- real soon.
