Video: Kobe Bryant’s coy response when asked about buying a sports team in the future
During an appearance on CNBC, Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant was asked if he would have interest in buying a sports team in the future.
In typical Bryant fashion, the Lakers icon exhibited body language that would suggest he might have interest in owning a sports franchise, but wouldn’t give a straightforward answer (at around the 6-minute mark):
Lakers fans are probably hoping Bryant has interest in buying the Los Angeles franchise. Even though Jeanie Buss is a competent owner, the Lake Show have been a walking disaster for years — although they will be better this upcoming season now that Anthony Davis is next to LeBron James.
Since retiring from the NBA, Kobe Bryant has built a multimedia empire, headlined by his The Punies podcast, which shares important life lessons on how to play with joy and limitless imagination. Bryant, arguably the best player in Lakers franchise history, is using his world famous work ethic on things outside of basketball. Kobe has said multiple times since he left the NBA he doesn’t miss playing basketball and is enjoying working on these different projects.
Back in 2011, LeBron received a 2% stake in the Liverpool Football Club. Houston Rockets star James Harden recently purchased a minority stake in the Houston Dynamo, a professional soccer team in Houston. Players are starting to use their money on things outside of basketball, which is smart.
