Kobe Bryant took to the Players Tribune yesterday to officially announce that he will retire from the game at the end of this season. With a resume that boasts five NBA titles, one MVP award, an Olympic gold medal, and a reputation that puts him among the top shooting guards in history, Bryant's next stop is clearly the Hall of Fame. In the open letter to fans of the game, Bryant notes the difficulty he is having in maintaining the physical capacity after a string of injuries earned over his two decades in the game even though his mind and tenacity is just as sharp. Another thing is also for certain: the Nike Kobe signature should also be going big this season to help bid him farewell.
