Kobe Bryant literally laughs at the idea of coaching

New, comments

So you are telling me Kobe DOESN'T want to coach?

Kobe Bryant will officially retire at the end of the 2015-16 NBA season, which has naturally led to lots of questions about what he is going to do next. After spending most of the last 19 years suiting up for the purple and gold, how will the ultra-competitive Bryant adapt to a life without basketball? After a throwback performance in the team's 108-104 win against the Washington Wizards, Bryant was asked if he would ever consider entering into the coaching ranks. His reaction was priceless:

I don't know if in all my years of watching the Lakers I have ever seen Kobe laugh that hard. I didn't know it was possible to make Kobe laugh that hard. That also marks the hardest any Laker has laughed at a question about coaching since Jeremy Lin was asked about Byron Scott's end of game fouling philosophies:

I think the only way Bryant would have laughed harder is if someone asked him if he would have interest in the Houston Rockets coaching job this summer.
