Hyperextending that left knee caused a lot of awkwardness. So hearing it was his left achillies doesn't surprise me as it was his left knee that was hampering him. Extra pressure went other places.

I snapped at a lot of people yesterday telling me that D'antoni should have sat him when they weren't saying for D'antoni to sit him when Kobe hit those two threes that tied it. They were with everyone else screaming Kobe's praises and calling him a God and thinking about the game, not him. When he went down and people came saying he should have been sat I snapped at them for not giving a darn about his well-being till after the fact and then "hindsight martyring" themselves.

Bad night.

But today it's brighter to know he's ok and had no complications.

^ if Kobe wanted to return, no one is going to stop him except a medical report.

As it stands the moment that report says "cleared to play" he's going to play and ownership nor coaching staff is going to stop him.

That is what makes him Kobe for better or for worse.

I'd say to bring him off the bench to start but...I can't envision that. Unless we sign some awesome 2/3 guard/forward in the off-season.

If we had a coach that Kobe respected, like Phil, then yes he would be stopped.

 

Gary Vitti



Does bring up an interesting point about Phil. At the end of the day Phil wants to win as badly as Kobe. If he felt it necessary for Kobe to have to play 48 minutes just to win given our roster and their production(or lack thereof) he probably would play him as long as it took to ensure a win. Like any other coach really in our predicament.

However...

One would just feel that in that system Kobe wouldn't have to, unless everyone was stinking up the place so badly.

1. Phil would not have played Kobe 48 minutes over and over. He would have manged his minutes much better.

2. If we had Phil.....we wouldn't have been competing for 8th seed.

^ lovely to hear!!! No complications :D great news :)

 

Lol you do know that "no complications" and "successful" surgery essentially means Kobe Bryant woke up after the surgery was completed.

Yes, and it also means that surgery was performed as expected and no complications during surgery. Which is a good thing.

the no complication part is him waking up, and the successful part is that they repaired what they needed too.

It's still tragic that it happened, but I guess it could be worse. Imagine if this team were a favorite to win it all and this happened. I just look at this as an early offseason for Kobe. I wouldn't be surprised to see Kobe in the starting lineup come October.

Guys I'm just making light of the surgery.  I've never heard of an athlete having an unsuccessful surgery which is why I said what I said. 

 

I know Kobe's down and out but :joker2:

Then he walked back on, shot two free throws, made them, and then walked off 

 

 

That's like a scene in every movie man, where one badass guy would sacrifice himself for the rest of his friends and go out in a very bad ass way

There could be complications, like going in there and a surgeon messing up, but the reason u never c that is bc athletes have the best surgeons in the world.

There are many complications outside of the target object that can occur in surgery that are out of the surgeons hands. Thank God there were no complications.
