Kobe Bryant… remember him? As one of the best NBA players to ever do it, he’s broken more than a few records in his time.
But even after two full seasons of being away from the game, the stats continue to awe. Here’s one that is pretty unbelievable:
Despite being 39-years old, Kobe Bryant has still played more years in the NBA (20) than he hasn’t (19). Literally, the man has spent more years of his life on an NBA basketball roster than he hasn’t, even though he’s been retired for two years already.
It speaks to his longevity, which is one of the most remarkable aspects of his tenure. Still, though, it’s quite impressive that he’s still somehow the subject of crazy statistics after being out of the game for a while now.
