#BlackMamba - Lakers Celebrate Kobe Bryant At 36

Posted in: , ,

Kobe Bryant is an American NBA player for the Los Angeles Lakers and he turns 36 today. The hashtag #BlackMamba is currently trending on Twitter flagged off by his team's and followed up by his millions of fans.

But the LA Times struck a realistic note when they reminded that, "36 can also be a tricky age for an NBA player."

Shaquille O'Neal and Steve Nash were All-Stars at that age. Tim Duncan averaged more points and rebounds than he had in either of the two preceding seasons. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was still hoisting unguardable sky hooks in a career that would span six more seasons.

Charles Barkley was slogging through one of his final injury-plagued seasons. Michael Jordan was between his glory years with the Chicago Bulls and his gory years with the Washington Wizards. Hall of Famers Isiah Thomas and Larry Bird had already retired.

That said, we wish more years to to him, both in the game and in life!
