There are a LOT of miles on Kobe’s Odometer

Maybe Kobe should sit a game or two – he definetely deserves it. This is pretty amazing stuff…

ESPN: Courtesy of ESPN’s crack research team, here’s your Kobe Bryant Odometer, measured since the start of the 2007-08 season. We all know he’s played a lot, but I’ve never actually seen it tabulated like this.

Games Played Since 2007:
2007 Olympic Qualifying- 10
2007-08 Reg. Season- 82
2007-08 Postseason- 21
Pre-Olympic Tour- 5
Olympics- 8
2008-09 Reg. Season- 82
2008-09 Postseason- 23
2009-10 Reg. Season- 50

TOTAL- 281

Given how most of us haven’t gone to the gym 281 (or even 28) times since the start of the ’07-’08 season, the concern Kobe might be stretching himself a little thin this year after tweaking his groin, knee, and elbow, fracturing a finger, and now wrenching his left ankle. Still, all signs point to game 282 coming tonight against the Nuggets (7 pm PT, ESPN). At shootaround this morning, Kobe (and this will shock- shock!- you) said he’ll play despite the bum wheel.

    As impressive as all this is Kobe really needs to take a break. We need him for the playoffs and he just needs to get healthier with little or no injuries at all.
