No Surprise, Kobe will play tonight

Is there anything that can stop this man?

L.A. Times: As expected, Kobe Bryant will play tonight against the Denver Nuggets.

“I think he wants to see his way through this game and see what it’s going to be like,” Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said Friday morning.

Bryant initially sustained the sprain last Friday and aggravated it Wednesday after Lamar Odom stepped on his foot in a game against Charlotte.

Bryant walked through the defensive part of this morning’s shoot-around but did not take part in the shooting part of it.

    played denver twice blown out twice….played clevland twice lost twice…i know we need a trade..but would that be enough,i mean we’re not in the same league as these teams this far..we’re getting beat out right.these teams are much improved.so hinrich wouldn’t have helped that much.their point guard killed us in all theses losses.i know we need a point guard.but we need one with the whole package.score,pass,defence,drive.harris wouldn’t be that either.to repeat we’re gonna need a bigger caliber of trade.like hinrich and noah for some toughness,we could give morrison,sasha,josh.maybe not that bulls trade but maybe another team..but that type combo.cause we need that “very good”guard and some strenth in the middle.we are weak.and we cant answer that.so noah would provide strength rebound,energy is key!!!we dont have that either!so,energy!but any way that’s what i see.we need a point guard full of fire.and a big guy with energy an strength.cause kobe always provides our confidence.shannon an lamar are pulling their weight.pau and drew are finesse.they need back up!fish is good but can’t put in enough minutes farmar aint too bad.if we could just add that guard an get that big energy guy! i would beleave we would be prepared then.but if we cant get that.i dont beleave we can repeat.we’ll see…….. go lakers!!!
