Kobe Has a Strained Groin

Bryant, who struggled mightily with his shot last night, isn’t expected to miss any time due to the injured groin: “Kobe Bryant aggravated a strained right groin in the Lakers’ loss to Houston but said he’ll be able to keep playing through the injury. ‘Treat it, work through it,’ Bryant said late Sunday night. ‘I’ll be all right.’ Bryant initially hurt the groin a week ago against New Orleans. He said it has limited his ability to change directions and it clearly bothered him in the final minutes against Houston, although he said he aggravated it first in the first quarter.”

    Mightily is a funny word. That is all.


    Of course kobe with the groin move last time wasn’t it the flu. Any excuse to cover his a** in case he goes 5-21 like last night. Nobody I know whose ever had a “real” flu can go out there and play. He makes it seem like his the only player in the league who plays sick or hurt. It’s nothing new jordan used to pull that crap too expect that jordan actually created shots for his teammates instead of trying to shoot himself out of it. What happened to kobe being the best player by far over everyone else. How can the best be averaging more turnovers than assists huh.

    dayum the bird(men) are right on point. i agree with the flu thing as well, if you have the flu there is no way you can go out and play basketball

    Looks like everyone’s out to get number one. Or 24, in this case.

    A strained groin? Are we sure he didn’t get that visiting Colorado again?

    White girls in Houston reported similar injuries, are doubtful for an appearance in court.

    I knew these comments would be funny.

  • Omnixyience (Philippines)

    haters lol
    even if you have a cough you don’t even play, your so full with your comments I bet you can’t even play with that groin injury for a year.

    a groin injury is a lot harder than a injured ring finger or a pinky, much to say a flu lol
