BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Kobe Bryant says he's ''scared'' about his future after basketball, although he's embracing the challenge of finding something that he can be as passionate about as sports.
Bryant turns 36 next month and is under contract with the Los Angeles Lakers for two more years. He was limited to just six games last season because of two major leg injuries, leaving him with the kind of idle time he never had before in his career.
Bryant gives a peek into his life in a Showtime documentary airing in November. ''Kobe Bryant's Muse'' covers much of last season, when Bryant was sidelined and the Lakers finished 27-55, the most losses in club history.
Bryant said Friday at the summer TV critics' meeting he's looking forward to eventually retiring from basketball and transforming his career into something else.
