Very low, Kobe is likely after the next season.

He only needs 7000 points, and isn't he still fairly young enough?


I would think he is capable of playing until he is 37-39, isn't he?


I think it would be harder for him though to take a role player role to get there.

I forgot to put retire in my sentence. But, Kobe has indicated at retirement when his contract ends for a while now.

0%. I just don't think he'll play after next year.

He says he's retiring soon. :shrug:

I don't believe him but based on that, small chance.

If he wanted to, and put his retirement on hold, then he could.

If the media constantly talks about how he cannot surpass KAJ's record, he probably will play until he breaks it. he does have that competitive nature

If he is retiring at after next year then zero but if he plays 3-4 more season then it's very likely so that's why I said 30-39%

Yeah, I'm not sure he'll play after next season. So 0% chance.

I won't claim 0%, I think its more like a 10% chance. Not sure if he will play after next season, if he does, and signs a 2 year deal, he may approach it.

he claims he's retiring at 2015 season but i don't see him playing more than 5 years. kobe will never be a teams second option thought

100%.

He is not retiring next seaosn, he will now allow himself to end behind jordan in rings, so he will go wherever he needs to go to chase that ring.
Once he wins it, or if he does not that record will be his final frontier for his ego and he will play intil he is 50 if necesary to surpass it.

Dwight won't know either way so I don't think it plays a factor. I think Kobe plays 2 more years but doesn't come close to breaking his record.

As for Dwight, it will all come down to how much he cares about the money.

Kobe himself said that he might only play 1 year.

I don't know if I believe him. If he's still playing this well, and that #1 spot is within serious reach, I can't see how he doesn't go after it. I think we'd be lying to ourselves if we said that he didn't care about things like that. I'm sure he's thirsting for one more ring too.

I said 40-49%.

he wants to play with players he can get along with.....its gonna be the same case like what happened with shaq 9 years ago....shaq said either i stay and kobe leaves or i leave....and kupchuk signed kobe long term and shaq was traded to miami and if this is the same case, it will be a sign and trade or kobe leaves...which i doubt it

Obviously 100% dependent on how many more seasons he decides to play. I said 0-9%, but that being due to him stating he's leaning towards retiring after next season.

Even if Kobe does decide to break Jabbar's record how long will it be before someone like Lebron or Durant breaks Kobe's record?

even if he doesn't retire I still got him at 10%

If he averages 20 a game for the next 5 years or so, he can do it. But with all the talk that he's not long for the league, I don't see it happening.

02-25-2013, 11:57 AM
i put 0-9% only because i think hes gonna stick to what he says about only having two years left, otherwise i would ha said 90% if i knew he would sign a 3 year deal or something like that after his current contract

He will if he doesn't retire after his contract is up. The real question is if he goes elsewhere to break it if the Lakers decide to build around Dwight?

This. He most likely will break it, but it may be ugly. Unless his knees give out, he will play until he breaks that record. And hell probably play another year or two after he breaks it to try and put it away. No way he retires in two years

Of course they have a shot but they would have to keep up their play well into their 30s, and stay injury free.

Kobe wants to go out on top of his game so I say 0-9%.

I don't know how serious he is about retiring, but if he does play 4 more years, which he physically could I would say 100 percent. He would only have to average about 21 points a game over the next for years. Even if he breaks down to like 18 his last year the next couple around 26 would take care of that.

Next season is his farewell (championship) tour. He won't break jabbar's. Lebron most likely, durAnt definitely.

He could be, and will be in about two years in he sign another contract with the lakers, Dwight will be the man(yes he's staying) but Kobe will be more like 1b

Heat fans are so delusional, they believe everything the media says, Kobe and Dwight actually have a good relationship going right now.

Durant would have a better shot at breaking it then lbj but I say neither will get it because I don't think they'll play as long as Kobe will

id bet money he is not retiring when his contract is up. any takers? this is kobe ****ing bryant we are talking about here. he is definitely shooting for KAJ record. will he get it? I honestly think he will. he has lost his athleticism 4-5 years ago but is still very very good due to his post game/foot work/pump fakes. those skills will not diminish as he gets older.

The only way he doesn't sign another contract imo is if he wins another ring. If he has 5 rings and 4k points to go to catch KAJ he signs another contract to try and do it. I think he wants one of those accolades. Considering how close he is to both I don't blame him.
