Kobe Bryant said he's "afraid" of life after basketball.
"You really have to lean on muses and mentors going forward, just as I did as a kid. It's about having that next wave of things, which is scary as hell, but it's fun at the same time," Bryant said. He seems like a basketball lifer and may play beyond the two years of his current deal. Bryant should be 100 percent healthy coming into the 2014-15 season and is a decent risk-reward pick in the early rounds of fantasy drafts.
The Kings advanced to the Las Vegas Summer League finals with a win vs. the Wizards on Sunday, led by MarShon Brooks' 14 points and five rebounds off the bench.
Brooks scored with ease and finished 5-of-7 from the field in just 16 minutes, but in true Summer League fashion he also committed four turnovers and five personal fouls. Sacramento led 39-10 at one point in the first half and cruised to the victory with nine different players scoring at least four points. They'll face the Rockets for the Summer League championship.
The Bucks will be claiming Kendall Marshall off waivers.

The Lakers had to have known there was a strong possibility that another team would be claiming Marshall. Perhaps rookie Jordan Clarkson playing so well at summer league made it a risk they were willing to take in order to open up some cap space. Marshall will compete with Nate Wolters as the backup or he could start and move Brandon Knight to the shooting guard. Just like last season, the Bucks have some very interesting lineup decisions to make.
