Go back in time with me to the winter of 2014 when a basketball star made a surreal appearance at BC.
Yes. The then injured Laker star just showed up one night at BC and crashed a marketing class. Of course the surprise appearance went viral and everyone wondered how and why it all came together. But what was more interesting is that Bryant came back the next day and sat in on more classes and talked to some Administrators. I was told he had real discussions about getting his MBA after his playing days (and how that could happen even though he doesn't have a bachelor's degree.)
I haven't heard of anything BC and Bryant related since, but with his pending retirement, why not ask if Bryant was sincere about his BC education. Even with his open calendar and wealth, going back to school would be a huge sacrifice for Bryant. He would seemingly have to uproot his family and dedicate some time to school work. There are probably more convenient programs in Los Angeles for Bryant's needs and interests. I doubt he is even thinking about BC right now, but I hope someone from the school reaches out. Kobe becoming a student at BC would be a great opportunity for Bryant and BC.
