Bryant will be 38 in 2016, and for a shooting guard that needs his elevation to get his shot off, that's going to be an issue at that point.
Bryant was more or less a role player on the 2012 gold medal team after being the focal point in 2008. He continues his recovery from a fractured tibia he suffered only weeks after returning from an Achilles tear.
