    NBA's Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant dun

    Maybe what Kobe Bryant’s knee needed was a little rest and some expensive, exotic therapy. His knee had been an issue the last couple seasons — it’s almost bone on bone. It’s why Kobe had surgery on it last summer, and why he had to have it drained multiple times in previous years. It’s why…

  2. Kobe admits his knee is nearly bone-on-bone

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    It is hard to judge just how much Kobe Bryant is hurting. It’s because he doesn’t give in to his body, he just keeps pushing through the pain. He keeps playing, keeps pressing forward and pushing his team with a Terminator like will. He can be slowed by pain, he may miss shots with a…

    Kobe Bryant rests about as much as the T1000. He played just a hair under 39 minutes a game last season. He has never played less than 36.1 minutes a game since 1998. And that’s just the regular season. (And you wonder why people talk about all the miles on that body, minutes that would…

    Kobe Bryant played 25 minutes against Barcelona, his competitive nature getting the better of his  need to rest his knee. He asked to come back in the close game despite him not being able to fully trust his knee yet (which shows in his inability to drive and his off-target jumper). Kobe was 2 for…

  6. Kobe admits knee was "extremely painful" during finals, about 60 percent now

    Kobe Bryant played six minutes in the Lakers first exhibition game in London, after which he sat with ice on his knees. Londoners chanted his name in the second half, but they got more Pau Gasol. Kobe played the six minutes he did out of obligation to the fans, his knees need more rest and…
