Kobe Bryant decides against Olympics farewell in Rio

Kobe Bryant has decided not to make his competitive farewell to basketball at this year’s Olympic Games in Rio.

The 37-year-old Los Angeles Lakers star said in December that another Olympic appearance would be a “beautiful” ending to his career after helping the United States win a gold medal in 2008 and 2012.

However, the five-time NBA champion has now changed his mind and intends to bow out in Lakers colours, meaning his final appearance is likely to be on April 13 when the Lakers host the Utah Jazz at the Staples Center.
