Kobe Bryant is enjoying what is essentially a lap of honor in his final season in the NBA.
While nowhere near the dominant force he once was, fans are still flocking to NBA arenas in the hopes seeing a moment of magic from an icon of the sport before he hangs up his sneakers at the season's end, and giving him some fantastic receptions while doing so.
Kobe has also being making a lot of media appearances, and during an interview en Espanyol for ESPN, he told a tale of a chat he had with fellow sporting legend Ronaldinho, who decided to tell Kobe about the next great player, who he said would be even better than him.
Ronaldinho himself has recently confirmed that he has no intention of retiring just yet, but he will begin his search for a new club after 'Carnival' in Brazil.
He still wants to play, but partying comes first. Never change, Ronaldinho.
