Kobe Bryant Gets ‘Therapy’ on Shooting Hand

Photo Credit: TMZ

It’s been three full months – a fourth of an entire year – since the Lakers last suited up to take on the Mavs in Game 4 of Western Conference Semi’s. Now 41 days into the NBA Lockout and we’re doing write-ups on stories like this…

Kobe Bryant was spotted at the Happy Nails Salon in Newport Beach last week to get some, eh, therapy on that troublesome shooting hand.

There are three things that disturb me about this:

(1) I just sourced TMZ.
(2) I just did a write-up on Kobe getting a man-pedi.
(3) I just typed mani-pedi.

The summer months in the NBA usually produce some newsworthy stories. Last summer was historically active with the Decision (and the narcissistic events that followed), Amar’e packing his bags for New York and dozens of relevant player and coach movement.

This off-season, well… I’m still trying to figure out how to pronounce Besiktas, writing articles about World Peace going to the UK, and now, reporting on the Happy Nails Salon in Newport Beach.

I think I speak for all of us when I say: Please end this lockout and hurry back, NBA.

    OMF’nG!!!!!! This lockout better get resolved and pretty damned quick! I don’t think I’d be able to sustain even my current level of sanity in a world where THIS is considered NBA news!!!!!!!!!!

    This just in! Kevin Durant brushed his teeth last night after eating a steak dinner with green beans and scalloped potatoes!

    Newsflash! D-Wayde reports that his last bowel movement was “very satisfactory”!
