LOS ANGELES, CA – Kobe Bryant is done with basketball, but he could have a future at NewsFix! Just look at this lyrical genius:

"This season is all I have left to give.

My heart can take the pounding

My mind can handle the grind

But my body knows it's time to say goodbye."

That's just part of the poem that the five-time NBA champ posted on The Player's Tribune to announce his retirement at the end of the season.

The 37-year-old Laker has been having a rough year(some say it's the worst in his 20-year NBA career), but even still, he will go down with the greats.
