08:07 AM ET 08.06 | Closer to the end than the beginning of his career, Kobe Bryant, while overseas now, may also be geographically closer to his professional swan song. The idea intrigues [Bryant]: A farewell season beyond the completion of his Los Angeles Lakers career, a victory lap in a European destination that bookends a blessed basketball life. ... Bryant travels to Europe and it all comes so easily to him. As he chases his second gold medal with Team USA in these Olympic Games, his basketball future in Europe remains ripe with possibilities. Asked about the possibility of playing a season in Europe, Bryant told Yahoo! Sports: "It would be natural for me to go do it. It wouldn't be a stretch at all. I grew up here."

I'd be surprise if he does end his career in Europe. There's no need to in his twilight years. That's just stealing money.

"Stealing money", damn I like that phrase!!!!! Isn't that what some NBA players are doing now??
