Could Kobe Bryant envision being a potential owner or part-owner of a professional sports team in the future? " I havent really had a burning desire to look into it too much," Bryant said. "But if I do, if its something I feel passionate about and dive into it, and be part of a franchise and help a franchise grow, then thats something Ill look into." What about a role with the Lakers after his playing days are over? "Me and the Buss family weve grown up together," Bryant said. "Jeanie and Jimmy, theyve known me since I was a kid. It would be an honor to help them with the transition to try and get back to the top."
