Will 2015-2016 NBA Season Be Kobe Bryant's Last?

So idling on the bench for most of what turned out to be the Los Angeles Lakers' worst season ever apparently hasn't made Kobe Bryant want to push himself even harder. The NBA star himself has not yet set a formal timeline for his retirement, but Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak has now said twice in the last six months that Bryant will likely pack it in after the 2015-2016 season. During an interview on Sirius XM NBA Radio, Kupchak said, "He has indicated to me that this is it. I think first and foremost he's in the last year of a deal. There have been no discussions about anything going forward and I don't think there will be."
