To sum it up, he went from the locker room to the team bus on crutches. Wasn't able to make it to the podium for the post game question session.

That being said, Kobe made it clear that he'll play in game 5

its just a precaution. he sprained his ankle, so its extra painful once you stop moving, and you don't want to keep putting weight on it after that.

I understand what your trying to say, but.................

Never compare this to that. Kobe didnt get hauled off the floor like someone went at his knees with an two by four!!!! He refused to get off the court!!!! Kobe's an warrior, so comparing his pain tolerance and bad a$$ness to Pierce is an disgrace to the legacy he's trying to leave.

Blasphemy!


But in seriousness, shouldn't be that big of a deal. Kobe will be ready to go game time and if anything this should help the Lakers get their act together and finish this thing in 2 more games.

However one can not help but imagine a world where the #1 and #2 seed in the west lost in the first round...

Hah, I forgot about the hate of Paul Pierce from Lakers fans after that. I agree this is different, but you still get the point. They both played/will play.

New Orleans has shown they can win this series while Kobe plays. I don't think LA can win this without him.

That said, Kobe finished the game. Crutches are just to keep the pressure off. Nothing to be concerned with IMO.

The dude cant accept not leading the team in scoring.

he goes 0-7 in first half? no prob he will chuck his way up in the second.

The bad news it that usually cost us the game.

I rolled my foot a few months back, running and nearly the exact same fashion as he did. I was not on crutches the first week but should have been, because I was limping badly. It was odd though, that as bad as it hurt to walk, I was actually better when running. I think he'll be fine when moving around during the game, but coming out for long periods of time could be trouble. It will probably be a case where the more he stays on the floor the better.

Gotta remember that its the same ankle he severely sprained against the Mavs a month ago

Why would anybody want to fake an injury anyways, especially in the playoffs. Kobe isn't faking , and neither did Pierce in 2008. What benefit would faking serve for any of those players? None.

If he eliminates LA in round 1 without his 2nd best player I'd call him the best player in the league forget just best PG.

As would I. He's been the best player in the playoffs thus far. He has a PER of 35.0 through four games and his WS/48 is nearly at 0.350! I don't think most people really realize how brilliant he's been. He's putting up a series for the ages.

He will play but the bigs have to step up and earn their money big time. Bynum needs to play like he did in the start of the series. Pau needs to step up his game and show everyone that he is the 2nd best player on this team.

Kobe is irreplaceable, and he knows it. Hurt or not, Kobe plays game 5. Even at 60% he will still take care of Marco Belinelli. Belinelli has not hurt the lakers this series, his best game was a 10 point performance in game 1.

Crooner, come on. I'm not going to get even into the 1st 3 because they are just childish and non-factual. And the trade demand should be YOUR FAVORITE KOBE moment because it led to management waking up and acquiring Gasol. Playing through the finger injury still? You do realize we are currently going for a 3-Peat...you think it would have been better if he would have sat? :rolleyes:

I've watched the Lakers since 88 and have not seen another man play the way he has with such skill in a purple and gold jersey. It wouldn't kill you to show a little appreciation to the guy, ya know...
