Kobe "Bean" Fighting Father Time!

I found this great article from the Los Angeles Times regarding Kobe Bryant, who begins his quest for a 4th championship tonight against the Orlando Magic. Kobe is in his 13th NBA season and has played 1,118 games, or 340 games more than Michael Jordan had played at the same age. The 340 games is the equivalent of 3 NBA seasons, and considering that Jordan was still playing at a high level at 36, Kobe probably has at best 3 peak seasons left in his body assuming he doesn't have any devastating injuries. With the "young boys" like Melo, LeBron, Dwight and Dwyane knocking at the door, in reality this may be his best chance to secure that elusive 4th championship.
