Upon leaving a Hublot event Wednesday night, Kobe Bryant faced a swarm of fans and cameras outside, with spectators demanding autographs and pictures.
Before entering his vehicle, Bryant was asked by TMZ Sports whether he would take a job offer to join “Inside the NBA” on TNT alongside host Ernie Johnson and former NBA stars Kenny “The Jet” Smith, Shaquille O’Neal, and Charles Barkley.
“No,” Bryant said with a smile but without any further explanation.
Reported interest in having the Black Mamba join the show circulated prior to his final game in April. And although there is no indication as to what Bryant may do now that his legendary career is over, he has indicated that there is much in store.
