Kobe Bryant: Retirement plans ‘just slipped out’ during a game

first_img“The next day I told him, ‘You really messed me up with that,’” Scott said. “We just started laughing.”Future plansWould Bryant ever coach or become a general manager? Bryant interrupted both questions and said, “Nope.” “If I’m involved in basketball from a league perspective,” Bryant said, “it would be from an ownership perspective.”Would Bryant follow the footsteps of Magic Johnson, who’s part of the Dodgers’ ownership group?“We don’t have the same personality,” Bryant said. “I can’t go around talking and smiling at people all day.”Out of sightLast season, Scott became irritated with Nick Young’s inconsistency and attitude. This season, Scott became irritated with questions Friday about Young sitting out the past two games.“He hasn’t been out of the rotation,” Scott said. “Everybody’s acting like he’s been out for the last month. It’s been two games. Relax.”Scott said he felt “OK” with Young’s play after averaging 9.5 points on 41-percent shooting in 19.8 minutes per game off the bench. Yet, Scott has opted for a bigger lineup by featuring Metta World Peace at backup small forward. “I’m not trying to butt heads or be in the media,” Young said. “I’m going to ride with whatever happens. If he throws me in, I’ll be ready.”She said itBryant reported that his oldest daughter, Natalia, once met former Hawks center Dikembe Mutombo at an NBA All-Star event: “He puts his hand out to shake her hand and she goes, ‘No, no, no (wagging finger).” “It just slipped out,” Bryant said, laughing. “He was talking about my minutes so I said, ‘That doesn’t matter. I’m not playing next year anyway.’”Bryant decided not to clarify so he could “mess with (Scott) a little bit.”Scott reported that Bryant “seemed at peace.” But Scott did not feel that way. Suddenly his in-game concerns regarding Bryant involved more than monitoring his minutes and watching him struggle with his shooting accuracy. “I can’t sit here and say I was 110-percent focused on everything,” Scott said. “Every now and then, I’d lose my train of thought because I was thinking about what he just told me. It was probably the weirdest game I ever coached.”Bryant then confirmed his plans afterward to Scott before announcing the news last Sunday. ATLANTA >> The conversation seemed appropriate for a private moment in the coach’s office. Or maybe when the two talk on the phone. Instead, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant informed coach Byron Scott he would retire at the end of the 2015-16 season in an unusual setting. It happened at the beginning of the third quarter when the Lakers played last Saturday in Portland. “I was shocked,” Scott said before Friday’s 100-87 loss to the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena. “I was more like, ‘What? I didn’t think I heard you correctly.’”Scott did not need a hearing aid.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
