If you even casually follow the NBA, there’s a good chance you saw the playground show Kobe put on in front of a spellbound crowd in Manilla last weekend (and reportedly raked in $400k in the process).

While I watched him humiliate this guy, I couldn’t stop wondering…

“How is that knee holding up?”

According to teammate Derek Fisher, Bryant told him that his knee is the best it’s been in a long time, which is great news for Laker Nation… and not so great news for the other 29 NBA teams.

Fisher, who says he initially blew off Bryant’s claims, quickly changed his mind.

“I saw it a little bit in Manila, so I believe now.”

For now, we’ll just have to take Fish’s word for it.

    I might believe that his knee is ok now.  The question is, how long will his knee stay healthy.  And still yet, how long will the operation keep things ‘in place’?  Is this a one time thing, or will he need more treatments after playing for a few months in the regular season?

    Good for the Lakers, bad for the league. The Mav’s should go ahead and polish up the trophy, pack it up, and send it to LA. Ups, FedEx, doesn’t matter. If KB24 is healthy and hungry, it’s a wrap!

    kobe was obviously injured the last two seasons. he didn’t become “old” overnight. hopefully, he comes back and remains healthy so we can put an end to the stupid mileage debate. how can you look at jerry rice, brett farve, and michael jordan playing at 40 and think a younger generation of superstars are going to be finished by 35? there’s no precedent to base these assumptions off of…
