Basketball great Kobe Bryant says he will retire at the end of the season. The two-time Olympic gold medalist and five-time NBA champion made the announcement with a poem entitled ‘Dear Basketball’.
Dirk Nowitzki will reportedly make much less money than he did last season with the Dallas Mavericks. However, he is set to become the first foreign-born player to play 20 seasons in the NBA.
The 2015/16 season in the National Basketball Association ended with some fireworks. The Golden State Warriors topped what seemed to be an unbreakable record, and an NBA legend ended his career.
Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers has announced his plan to retire at the end of the current season. Bryant is in his 20th season in the NBA and has played for the Lakers his entire career.
Germany's Dirk Nowitzki has become just the sixth player in NBA history to crack the 30,000-point mark. The Dallas Mavericks player is also the first non-American to reach the milestone.
