He has been called one of the greatest athletes in the history of the National Basketball Association, and is arguably the most talented player of his generation. Kobe Bryant's impressive record speaks for itself: five NBA championships; 18-time All-Star; ranked third in career NBA scoring; second-highest single-game point total (81 against Toronto) in NBA history; and winner of two Olympic gold medals. After 20 years in professional basketball--all with the Los Angeles Lakers--Bryant announced he would retire this season. In this session, one of his first post-retirement appearances, Bryant talks with sports broadcaster Jim Gray about his career, his life and his future. It promises to be a fascinating look at the amazing career of a one-of-a-kind athlete who has left an indelible mark on basketball and sports.
