    He really is nearing the end of his career. His body, which has a ton of basketball miles on it is just not going to hold up like it used to in the past.


    Kobe Bryant out six weeks with knee fracture


    The rash of injuries to Lakers point guards that has afflicted starters, backups and fill-ins alike struck Kobe Bryant on Thursday, the All-Star learning he will miss about six weeks with a broken bone in his left knee.

    Bryant initially shrugged off the injury he suffered Tuesday in the third quarter against the Memphis Grizzlies as a hyperextended knee, but an MRI exam showed he had broken the lateral tibial plateau. He stayed in the game after conversing with trainer Gary Vitti.

    Bryant's injury comes only six games into his comeback from the torn left Achilles' tendon that had sidelined him since April. He averaged 13.8 points, 6.3 assists and 5.7 turnovers in the six games but was starting to resemble his old form in recent games, dunking and making a 28-foot three-point basket against the Grizzlies.

    This really was best case scenario for Lakers.

    Now they can sale at the trade deadline and try to rebuild after a 20-25 win season.
    It wont be easy with a resigned Kobe eating tons of cap space but the alternative of winning 35-40 games was even more brutal.

    Thing is, they seem to play better without him at the moment.

    The biggest joke of it all is that he is probably gonna start in the all star game after playing maybe 15-20 games
