Kobe ‘Bruce Willis’ Bryant

Following his brief knee scare against the Thunder last night, Bryant likened himself to the star of the movie “Unbreakable”: “I was concerned, I was very concerned,’ Bryant said. (But) I did my ACL check, my MCL check (and) it was all intact.’ A knee injury is not something Bryant needed, not with LeBron James and the Cavaliers coming to town Christmas. He already is playing with a fractured right index finger and he got knocked in the jaw by Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook. ‘We’re fortunate that he didn’t do anything disastrous,’ Jackson said. But isn’t Bryant concerned about these injuries? ‘Nah, I’m Bruce Willis, man,’ he said. ‘I’m not going to say I got a knee, I got a finger. I’m fine. I’m more than fine. I’ll be ready to go on friday. I’m healthy, I’m fine.’”

    Since we are on the subject, if Bruce Willis dies with a irrection, it will be the ultimate irony.

    Hey Kobe, Hudson Hawk SUCKED!

  • nicko

    @Betcats…sweet spelling

  • http://www.mynameinblue.blogspot.com Hisham

    Kobe keeps nicknaming himself. Please someone remind him that the analogy also goes for his teammate: he plays with Mr. Glass AKA Andrew Bynum

    Wow. sorry about the triple post. My comments kept disappearing.

  • http://slamonline.com Brad Long

    I thought it was because of the way I was spelling motherfu(ker. Apparently not.

    ^that’s quite a thing you got going on up their B. Long. And since nobody got my earlier joke; He would die hard.

  • kadavour

    when you have to explain your joke that usually means it isn’t that funny kid.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Or it means it when so far over your head that you have to stand on a ladder and use binoculars in order to see it. Either way, i win.

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    nahh, landry is bruce willis

  • Retrobat

    Actually, I agree w/BETCATS. I didn’t get it at first, but in hindsight, it is really funny. Just because we’re not on the same plane of comedy as BETCATS, doesn’t mean that it’s not funny.

    Oh, and go Magic.

  • wilz

    kobe is gozilla, hes breathing fire and smashing skyscrappers, boom boom, bruce willis, sweet dee

  • boogster

    if you had lost a tooth in a fight, you dont really feel anything, but finger can be real bothersome

  • http://slamonline.com Niya-girl-fresh

    Kobe has fractured three fingers in his shooting hand, hurting your teeth isn’t anything, because you don’t ball with your mouth, now that’s a “Boo hoo sarcasm moment” lol. Kobe’s played with a variety of injuries and illnesses. I’ve seen other players miss games with the flu and a sprained ankle. But with these injuries it’s not cool because he can also worsen his them. But he’s Kobe it’s like he never feels it when he’s out there playing, hate him or love him Slam he’s a beast.

  • http://slamonline.com Niya-girl-fresh

    And Kobe’s no spring chicken like these other guys so all of the wear and tear over the years coming straight from high school, and the initial banging up he’s endured on a 31 year old frame, that really probably feels like 41 in basketball years it’s tough to go out there and play at your best almost every year and night after suffering several hard to deal with injuries.

  • Rob

    Kobe is more like Michael Myers, the guy from Halloween. He just can’t be hurt. Kobe is also as cold blooded as him.

  • NigerianLaker

    The Bruce Willis reference was impotent

  • Tim

    he is more like sylar from heroes.. he put his finger inside a white women and now is untouchable

  • Michael Scorn

    Carl is not tough for going to the dentist and getting his teeth fixed on the same day. I bet Kobe wishes he could get his finger fixed like new in one day. you do not need teeth to play basketball!

  • Simmy Sosa

    Carl is tough because Dirk fell from the blow and Carl didn’t even stagger. Dirk missed the next game Landry started and had 20 and 7 the next night.

  • Michael Scorn

    Ok, he’s tougher than Dirk. What does that mean again? It’s not like Charles Oakley missed the next game.

  • http://slamonline.com anjoe intal

    That makes kobe GREAT. He’s too tough!
