Here is a cool tidbit on Kobe. He has played more consecutive games than at ANY other point in his career!
CBS.com: “On a different team but in the same division is Kobe Bryant, who at 31 shouldn’t be included in this company until you look at his odometer. Bryant, in his 13th season, is seventh among active players with 35,802 career minutes. Motivated by his usual competitive demons and fourth championship last season, Bryant is having what many believe is his best overall season. He hasn’t missed a game in three years, and his minutes are back up to a pre-30-year-old rate of 38.5 per game. And there’s quality to go with the quantity; Bryant is shooting a career-high .485 from the field and is averaging a league-high 30.2 points as he chases his third scoring title. “I’ve been able to stay relatively healthy,” Bryant said in a recent interview. “Nothing really major, injury-wise. I feel great.’”
