Break out the vino people, because Kobe Bryant is here to stay!
After tearing his achilles tendon in a nasty season-ending injury against the Golden State Warriors, people began to wonder whether or not the 34 year-old baller still had any gas left in the tank.
Well the Los Angeles Laker legend heard the retirement rumors and took to Twitter to weigh in on the issue:
Oh thank you sweet, merciful basketball gods!
We are SO SO thrilled to heard that Kobe will be coming back, because let's be real here. Laker basketball just isn't the same without him! We're STILL trying to forget about what happened against the San Antonio Spurs!
We can already hear the chants starting at Staples Center! MVP! MVP! MVP!
