The finger needs to heal up to help Kobe’s shooting woes come to an end.

O.C. Register: “I rested it; it calmed down a lot,” Bryant said. “But it’s broken. So there’s nothing really I can do. The rest helped it, but it kind of is what it is.”


“The finger gets stronger,” he said. “I work it a lot and try to strengthen the hand again, try to see if I can’t palm a ball again, but it still gets sore.”

    Notice Dallas really forced Kobe to past. None of the shots he took in the 4th quarter were in-rhythm shots.

    Congratulations to KB24 and the Lakers. Don’t fix it Kobe it makes you the best long range shooter in the league and I know you’re getting used to it and if you think you’re comfortable with that better to ignore it and just fix it back when you retire.
