This is extremely disappointing for Laker fans and Kobe himself. He was just finding his groove and now he has to miss some more extended time. That’s also if it heals correctly. Hopefully this isn’t a lingering issue Kobe has the rest of the year because the Lakers have no hope for the playoffs, without him. Playoffs were a long shot even with Bryant. Let’s hope the “Black Mamba” can come back 100%, because the NBA isn’t the same without him suiting up every night.
Tonight Gasol passes Detlef Schrempf for 2nd highest european scorer in NBA history with 15,762 points. Pau Gasol has alot of work to do if he wants to get in first. Dirk Nowitzki holds that spot.
