Default Season-ending injury for Kobe Bryant

Torn Achilles, I think. Usually elite players play about 35-38 minutes per game, out of 48. Bryant's minutes lately: 48, 47, 43, 47, 41, 48, 45. Players at their peak (like Kevin Durant) can play 48 occasionally, but it's Bryant's 17th year in the NBA (since 1996) and nearly a decade past his prime age-wise.

Guy was told to stop playing so much, but the Lakers are on the brink of making the playoffs, so he said, nope, I'm staying in to get this done. Doesn't help that he's played tons of minutes all season, by the same coach who's driven other stars into the ground as well.

In last night's game, he felt the pain, kept playing, fell down 2-3 more times, and then finally it dawned on him that there might be an injury. I guess in a way he's lucky: players like Tracy McGrady were slated to be about as great as he is, but their serious injuries happened much earlier and ruined whole careers. At least Bryant will have a greater legacy.

In other news, triple double for Pau Gasol en route to a win for the Lakers despite Kobe not being able to play the last 3 minutes of the game. I love Pau, by the way. Only reason I watch that team, especially without Steve Nash.

What do you guys think about this level of sacrifice?

I am a hater of Kobe but I do appreciate his effort and I feel sorry for his injury.

The level of clownery in Lakers management had been unreal lately. Is all I want to say. Oh, and get well soon Kobe!
