08:12 PM ET 08.13 | Nobody was really expecting Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant to play in the 2014 FIBA World Championships, but the Black Mamba confirmed that notion - he will not be participating. Shockingly, despite Bryant's global presence, the two-time Olympic gold medalist has never participated in the FIBA World Championships as he's either been injured or had prior commitments which prevented him from taking part. Kobe is just one of many players who is expected to turn down the invite as Chris Paul, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony are all expected to decline.
