Kobe to decide future during off-season

New York: Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant would decide if the 2013-14 season would be his final season before the start of training camp next season.

After being picked 13th overall from high school by the Lakers in 1996-97 season, Bryant spent his entire 16 seasons with the Lakers, winning five world championship from 2000 to 2002, as well as in 2009 and 2010.

The 34-year-old said that "I`ll talk to my family and stuff and really see if I want to continue to sacrifice as much as I`m sacrificing right now."

"I`m putting my body through a lot to just try to get ready to play every single night. To do what I`m doing right now, it`s not easy. I`ll tell you, it`s taken a lot of commitment," Bryant said.
