The NBA without Kobe Bryant? One day it will happen.

The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday night earning them their first win of the year but that has done nothing to work over the mind of Bryant.

Bryant’s current deal ends after the 2015-16 season and the veteran is not about to change his train of thought based solely on Sunday’s win.

“Nah, not really,”he said via USA Today. “But I’m so loyal to this organization, there’s not a chance (of him leaving)…I’ve been really fortunate to win a lot of games here, a lot of championships here. You can’t (expletive) with (that).”

Asked if there was any chance he could play for another team, Bryant said it was not an option.

“It’s not going to happen,” Bryant said. “It’s not going to happen. You go through the good times, you’ve got to go through the bad times.”
