Kobe could use some a lot of rest…

ESPN: “I would say he is day to day,” coach Phil Jackson told the Lakers’ official Web site. “We have an opportunity here with two games before the All-Star break and there is some time there if he does need to take a longer time, we’re trying to give him the liberty to do that.”

    Phil sit kobe down. he needs time to rest and heal.

    +1. keep kobe out. these are two big games coming up and i think it would be good to see how we do against these teams w/out kobe. they’re regular season games after all.

    Kobe should also sit out the allstar game, he needs the rest and a bunch of other injured players are sitting out as well.

      yep i forgot to add that too. he should take the whole week off but be back to work next tuesday. or whenever the other player show up after the all star game. :)

    If he is to take the next 2 games off (Spurs & Jazz) and take the All Star game off, that would be a 10 day rest for Kobe. That is huge for him, he needs all the rest he can get.

    I would rest Kobe.
    It seems that the team wants to prove a point. They can win without Kobe. That’s great. I think this is sparking a fire on the team.
    Hopefully we can beat the Spurs tomorrow without Kobe and send a clear message to the league that we are more than just Kobe.
    Also it would be sweet to beat the Spurs. lol

    has anyone seen pau lately??! ever since the cavs game, pau has been MIA. anyways….rest kobe up until after the all star break and make a good push into the playoffs. hopefully we wont fall too behind cleveland for HC advantage. i know we dont need HC to win the title, but it sure would help. so if we can rest up kobe and stay close to cleveland going into the 2nd half of the season than i am all for it.

      That can be easily explained. See the Blazers game? Pau had butter fingers and couldn’t run. Reason? His legs felt heavy. He says they felt heavy all season and the rest they had today really helped. Its all about fatigue. Pau plays extended minutes cause of the Forward/Center switch in Phil’s lineup when Lamar comes in. He leads the team pretty well, hope he can do so again against Spurs and Jazz.
      2 more games, Lakers should hold out til Kobe come’s back.

    With all the talent we have we shold hang in for 2 more games, and a long break then gives everyone a chance to heal up and rested. Kobe needs to sit out these 2 games and just do wat he did in the all star game when he broke his finger play the first 3 mins and then sit down and relax, thats about 9 – 110 days of rest for him. HE DESERVES IT PHIL, BENCH HIM.

    9 -10 DAYS

    Kobe should sit and come back just before the Celtics game on the 18th.
