Watch Kobe Almost Swear On Live TV During Jersey Retirement Press Conference


Kobe Bryant never was one to hold back, both on the court and when speaking to the media, as he's proven time and time again over the course of his career, and after almost two years away from the hardwood, Bryant doesn't seem to have changed one bit.

As you all know, Kobe had both his No. 8 and No. 24 jerseys retired by the Lakers at halftime in their game against the Golden State Warriors on Monday, and in usual Kobe fashion, Los Angeles was buzzing in excitement for the ceremony.

Just as we've come to expect, Kobe's filter was almost non-existent, catching himself at the last second from dropping an F-bomb on live television.

It's not the first time either, as Bryant has somewhat of a reputation for swearing when speaking to the media.

We're gonna miss you Kobe.
