When Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant retired, many wondered what the legend would do in retirement. After spending 20 years as an NBA player, it was hard to imagine Bryant doing anything else in his spare time.
However, the Lakers icon quickly found himself busy with several business ventures and media undertakings. Bryant has produced several projects, including his Musecage series and short film, Dear Basketball.
However, according to ESPN, Bryant is already working on his next program:
ESPN announced today at the Television Critics Association Press Tour (TCA) that the network has teamed up with Kobe Bryant’s studio, Granity Studios, on a new show called Detail – written, produced and hosted by Bryant. The basketball analysis show will premiere in March 2018 on ESPN and will provide insights from one of the greatest players of all time.”
While the five-time NBA champion has been adamant he is not interested in a coaching or front office role, Bryant has also proven that he can not completely step away from the game of basketball. Bryant was well-regarded as one of the smartest and most observant players during his playing days and fans should be excited for this new show to debut.
For the time being, however, the focus in Los Angeles will still be on the development of the Lakers’ young core of players. The purple and gold have not experienced much success since Bryant retired, but hopefully things will turn around sooner rather than later.
