Head Lakers Coach Byron Scott Says 'Next Year Won't Be Kobe Bryant's Last Year'

Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott says Kobe Bryant isn't calling it quits after next season. Scott believes Kobe will come back after his current contract expires. There has been widespread speculation that Bryant will finish up his career next season.

"Scott says a lot depends on how next season goes but he doesn't think Kobe is done. He says Kobe is the one person in the league who could come back and play at a high level."

It will mark his 20th season in the NBA and it's the end of his current 2 year contract that pays him $45 million. Kobe said recently that he is hoping for a career "rebirth." He says he is inspired by the San Antonio Spurs who are still playing and winning championships. Scott visited the Studio 11 set and talked with sports anchor Liz Habib about his superstar's future.
