Kobe to give it a go, Vitti says he’s the toughest player he’s ever worked with

Kobe Bryant is going to give it a go tonight. It shouldn’t surprise any one of us though…

Twitter: Phil Jackson said that he expects Kobe Bryant (ankle) to play tonight against Denver.

Additionally, Gary Vitti had some high praises for Kobe’s toughness; most certainly unparalleled in the entire NBA.

Twitter: Lakers Trainer Gary Vitti on Kobe: He is absolutely the toughest, mentally and physically, athlete that I’ve ever worked with.”

    The “Drive For Five” that’s my dude right there. Some may call it selfish, but who cares. It’s the Nuggets!

    omg ANTHONY will be out with an ankle. I sure hope phil doesnt regret this come playoff time. I would hate to see him aggravate it more. Kobe says we play for championships yet he cares more about a couple of games instead of thinking long-term…

    I think Kobe is just gonna see how he will cop with the injuries and PROBABLY sit out if its too much. The next 2 games are very important (Thuggets showing off in their building last time) and Blazers (we haven’t won there in like 6 years) so I HOPE he can rest after those 2 games.
