Kobe Bryant Misses Shootaround Prior to Game 6 With Gastroenteritis

Kobe Bryant’s status for Game 6 of the Lakers/Nuggets series won’t be known until about 90 minutes prior to tip off tonight, but what we do know for now is that Bryant’s stomach isn’t feeling very well. Per the team: “Lakers guard Kobe Bryant missed Thursday morning’s shootaround ahead of Game 6 with gastroenteritis. We’ll know more about his status for the contest this evening about 90 minutes before tip off when the team’s PR staff or head coach Mike Brown provides an update on his condition. Bryant has a history of playing through injuries and ailments particularly in playoff games, but the team will refrain from speculating until seeing how he feels prior to the game.”

    I remember one game back in like 2002, Kobe had major food poisoning from a cheeseburger before playing in a game vs. the Kings back when the rivalry was huge. Slamson came out in a chef costume holding a massive dinner tray with a cheeseburger in it and ran around the Lakers bench during most timeouts. Man I miss those days.

    Gastroenteritis. A fancy name for the green bean squirts. Kobe needs to stop eating those Armadillo as*holes for breakfast.

    We all know hes going to play…if he doesnt, then he will never be “better” than MJ.

  • argonaut

    They can’t make up anything else for this? Why not just throw in flu like symptoms and avoid the embarassment? Hamels and the Lakers PR need to learn honesty is not always the best policy.

    Kobe has to play this game with a butt plug, right? And then the plug will be auctioned for charity.
