Kobe Bryant says “he has no plans to sit the rest of the season”


Kobe being the competitor he is, this is the exact answer I expect from him. The Lakers need Bryant to be at full strength when he returns from his knee injury, if they even want to have an outside shot at an 8th seed in the playoffs. LA has been competitive, but that hasn’t resulted in winning games as of late. There are no moral victories in basketball, and the Lakers are slowly sinking without Kobe on the floor night in and night out.
