Kobe Bryant


This just may be the last gold medal Kobe Bryant brings back to Los Angeles.

The L.A. Lakers icon and Team USA star confirmed after his game against Spain today that this was his last Olympics.

"This is it for me. Four years is a long time. These young guys will give it a go in Rio and I might be there to support them," Bryant told ESPN L.A.'s Arash Markazi.

Bryant, along with Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, LeBron James and the rest of Team USA brought home the gold in Sunday's finals, beating Spain (which included Bryant's teammate Pau Gasol) 107-100.

This was the second consecutive gold medal win for the U.S. basketball team, who also defeated Spain for the gold at the Beijing Games in 2008.
