Kobe Bryant is never retiring. No, really. The guy is gonna be out on the court in a wheelchair firing up shots at the Staples Center in 2062.

We say that because, less than a month ago, Kobe came out and said that he would be retiring after two more years in the NBA. But, recently, Kobe talked to CNN Turkey and revealed that his new plan is to play until he's 40.

"My aim is to play until I'm 40 years old," he said, "and I believe I can do that. This year, we added very good players to our squad. Steve Nash, Dwight Howard will make us stronger. Right now, things are not going well, but I believe it'll get better soon."

Did he really just jump from two more seasons to six more seasons in a matter of a month? Yes, he did. Sorry, Kobe haters. But, you're never gonna get rid of this guy.
