Kobe Bryant Opposed to NBA Age Limit

Count Bryant among those who don’t think the NBA needs to change its minimum age requirement from 19 to 20.

Bryant said they shouldn’t take the decision away from a player that age because "they’ve had situations that have worked out with high school kids" — such as Bryant.

Bryant reasoned that if 18-year-olds can join the Army, why shouldn’t they be able to play in the NBA? [The Press-Enterprise]
