Kobe Bryant, a player in the Los Angeles Lakers officially announced on Sunday that he would retire from professional basketball after the end of this season, his 20th in the N.B.A.
Bryant, 37 years old, made public his retirement in form of a poem titled “Dear Basketball’’ in the players’ Tribune. Bryant wrote:
You gave a six-year-old boy his Laker dream
And I’ll always love you for it.
But I can’t love you obsessively for much longer.
This season is all I have left to give.
My heart can take the pounding
My mind can handle the grind
But my body knows it’s time to say goodbye.
