Kobe Bryant and his greatest regrets

Kobe Bryant, whose Nos. 8 and 24 jerseys will be retired Monday in a halftime ceremony at Staples Center, opens up to Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania about the moments of his 20-year playing career he wishes he could have back.

Not surprisingly, the former Los Angeles Lakers superstar focuses on a pair of on-court matchups in which he felt he didn’t do enough to push his team to victory and reach the goals he set for himself.
