Jerry West Kobe's NEVER Coming Back Guys ... EVER

EXCLUSIVE

Anyone hoping for a Kobe comeback after his farewell tour is over brace yourself ... 'cause current Warriors -- and former Lakers GM Jerry West says IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.

Jerry was arriving into LAX when we had to ask whether he thought there was any chance Mamba could pull a Jordan ... and come back after a couple years away from the NBA.

West is a guy who'd know ... he's the dude who made the move to get Bryant in purple and gold in the first place and the two have remained close friends even after West left L.A. 

Check out the clip -- Logo throws cold water all over anyone wishing for an encore ... saying as far as he knows Bryant will NEVER play another NBA minute.

All good things end ... including the Lakers being good.
