Kobe Bryant Doesn't Miss Playing Basketball: 'It's Still A Part Of Me'

Kobe Bryant has opened up about how he doesn’t miss playing basketball at all!

“No, I don’t. It’s crazy,” the 38-year-old former Los Angeles Laker expressed while making an appearance on Good Morning America. “I started playing when I was 2. After playing for 20 years in the league, what I have now is — everything I’ve learned from the game, I carry with me to this day. The game has never truly left me. Physically, yes. But emotionally, and the things that I write, all stem from the game. So it’s still a part of me.”

“It’s very hard to let go of something that you’ve done for half your life. It’s kind of become who you are,” Kobe added. “But it’s a difference between doing what you do versus understanding that that is not who you are. Hopefully, other athletes can see that and understand that.”
