I think this statement puts to rest the issue of who was responsible for Kobe's long minutes of playing time towards the end of last season. 

 

They don't want to hear that!!

 

This type of stories should have their own Sportscenter special.

it did seem like he would try, the fact that he even walked up to take those free throws was impressive

Kobe wants it THAT badly.  That's how much that sixth means to him.   That's why I say if he makes it to the finals he's gonna put on a performance that will border on legendary because he's gonna give everything he has for it.

If we get him there we will reap the benefits.  Guy wants that sixth under every circumstance and I think he wants it more than anyone else in the league.

the man is insane

he couldnt have been able to do that, tendons are like elastic bands, after the rupture the part still attached to the calve muscle is way up because nothing is pulling it down.

his feet wasnt functional in that moment

I know i watched that game, he dragged his foot. really amazing.

he knew that after the free throws he was done, its ok the macho talk, but we all know that wasnt going to happen.

Gary Vitti talking about it.   Wow this adds more to it

 

“The warrior that he is, Kobe says maybe I can run on my heel,” Vitti recalls, laughing, in a recent interview. “I was like, ‘Come on. You have to go.’”

Vitti granted Bryant’s wish, however, to shoot his two free throws. In what he called a “gentleman’s agreement,” Vitti then alerted the officials and Golden State’s coaching staff the Lakers would then foul immediately so Bryant could leave the game.

All went according to script. Bryant swished both free throws on essentially one foot, walked off the court on his own and then added an extra layer to his many list of amazing plays. It also helped the Lakers tie the game with 3:09 remaining and eventually lead to a 118-116 over Golden State, an outcome they needed to salvage a playoff berth.

“I think it’s his gutsiest moment,” said Vitti.
