How will Kobe Bryant spend retirement?

Not by reuniting with Shaquille O’Neal.


When it comes to the “Inside the NBA” job offer, Kobe Bryant just did something pretty uncommon for him — he passed.

As we previously reported, the honchos at the show had reached out to Mamba, hoping he’d join Charles Barkley, Shaq and the rest of the gang either this season or next.

But Wednesday night outside of a Hublot watch event in Bev Hills, Kobe swatted the whole idea down — saying straight up he DOES NOT want the gig.

Five might have been a crowd, but we’re definitely missing out on some fun moments with Kobe passing.
