Kobe Bryant has adopted a slogan for his comeback from Achilles’ surgery -- “The Last Chapter.”
The Lakers guard invited his followers on Twitter to send ideas.
Bryant, who was injured on April 12 and is expected to be out at least six to nine months dating to surgery on April 13, announced the slogan Friday.
And the winner is... @eyydylan_ from #instagram! Thank you for all the submissions #thelastchapter #mambacurialpack pic.twitter.com/GuO8kauF7b — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) June 14, 2013
If this is indeed the last chapter for Bryant, that may not mean he’s headed into the final season of his career.
On radio, he recently suggested he’d consider playing a total of two seasons.
The Lakers have managed their payroll so that they should have tremendous spending power in the summer of 2014.
Bryant will make $30.5 million this year before his contract expires. It will be interesting to see how much the Lakers will be able to pay Bryant to stay an additional season.
If the team has the opportunity to go after a player such as LeBron James or even Carmelo Anthony, Bryant might need to take a significant pay cut to return.
