Kobe’s Got One Giant Finger

Kobe just on the Tonight Show that he dislocated his right ring finger in Game 5 of the Finals. Nothin’ a little tape can’t fix…Kobe Bryant

    damn Kobe. And he playing with that what, 1,5 years now? Yikes.

  • basicallyinthenba21

    At least it isn’t quite as big as the Kobe Puppet’s fingers…that shirt he and dfish wore during the parade was awesome

    Man, didn’t complain once about any fingers. Gotta love the toughness.

  • stryfee

    wanted magic to win just cuz i hate the lakers, but i like kobe, so congrats and he’s a warrior

    See now any other superstar in the league would of sat out a month or 2 and wait for it to heal, that’s what put kobe above the rest

    Kobe is a tough sumb1tch, you gotta give him that. I was reading that new Simmons piece, and I totally agree that Kobe’s last two year stretch has been a phenomenol example of consistency and mental toughness, if nothing else. Playing 82 games + a Finals run + Olympic Competition + 82 more games and a successful Finals run – thats just impressive.

  • Jello

    I know where he can put that fat finger.

    I’m not Freedom Fries. His account info came up when I scrolled down to comment. Something’s haywire.

    That looks like a big fat sausage. Does that help, real Freedom Fries?

    co sign ciolkstar
    Love em or hate em Kobe is one of the toughest players out there.Obviously he knows the Lakers need him to win it all so taking time off is not an option. I wonder if he will do it again. With the World championship qualifying coming up

  • jumpman3224

    dutch – Kobe will be getting some well deserved time off. Team USA does not have to play this summer to qualify, they get an automatic bid as reigning olympic champs.

    He’s a warrior…

    That’s one finger he can’t put that fourth ring on.

  • http://www.slamonline.com James the balla

    Jello, are you saying you want it in your a$$?? Man, freedom fies is the biggest idiot out here. Resist Kobe greatness BIOTCHHHH!!!

    Kobe’s a b*tch and dosent deserve a championship he may be one of the toughest
    players in this league but really who gives a sh%t about his dislocated finger he’s just lookin for attention……douchebag.

  • http://gmail Dirty Frank

    Wow Jsoto. That’s alot of hate in you. I don’t see how he’s looking for attention when he never mentioned it all playoffs. I think winning the finals MVP would garner him all the attention he needs.

    not bad, pinkie on the left is kaputt, and the right ring finger’s been loose since the Rockets Series… how is this anything special again? Watch any Nba game and see how many of those dudes have their fingers taped, too bad they don’t make it a media thing. musn’t have hurt too much since he put up 27 spg. Whatever..

    Hate him or love him you’ve gotta respect him! Not too many players would played that long, that hard with that finger!

  • doyouwantmore

    Kobe’s the Kim Jong Il of pro basketball.

  • Josh D

    Kobe denied a ring again this year

  • JoNaBo

    Dam, I’m Kobe’s biggest fan, but I always thought that he had a habbit of overselling his injuries. I guess I was wrong.

  • backboard

    dark, you got to chill. Kobe never to this point really complained about his f´d up fingers and he didnt put up this post or snap the pic of him holding up the 4. Chill out and give the man some credit.

    Ich versteh warum du ihn nicht magst aber konzentrier dich lieber auf den Spieler KB, nicht die Person….

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/officerbarbrady what

    Brian Baldinger thinks Kobe is a p*ssy.


    hes only got 4 fingers haha

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Die Deutschen (Schweizer? Österreicher?) sind in da HIZZLE! Ok backboard, sowie du mich angesprochen hast, nehm ich an dass du weisst wie oft ich Kob’s “disse”. Gleichzeitig habe ich schon mehrfach zugegeben dass er (oft) überirdisch gut Basketball spielt, ganz im Gegenteil zu den meisten Slam Besuchern, die nur klar ihn hassen, oder vergöttern. Aber Junge, Junge, ich kann Bean echt nicht leiden und diese Aufspielung seiner Verletzung (und er hats erwähnt in den Medien) find ich echt zum Lachen. Wie gesagt, du kannst nicht soviel B-Ball spielen im Jahr ohne irgendwelche Verletzungen mitzuschleppen..Bsp: ich hatte vom letzten November bis ca. April, nicht 1 sondern DREI verstauchte Finger an beiden händen. Trotzdem kein Spiel verpasst. Und habe nicht die medizinische Betreuung der Lakers zur Verfügung. Nba Spieler sind dauernd verletzt.
    Puuh, felt good to do that. German sure rocks if you wanna be concise.

    Imma take the high road on this one. Let him and his groupies slide. But when slam creates the adult-only locker room section on the site where cats can just go off on each other (yeah I realize it’s not the best idea to do it anywhere and at all times). I can think of about 50 one liner zingers about that pic, Kobe and his life . . . just so ya know ;P

  • backboard

    Kein Schwiiizer, Ösi, sondern ein deutscher Bayer. lol. Ne, kuck, ich versteh was du sagst, und ja, es gibt schlimmere verletzungen, aber manchmal schlachtest du mir den kobster zu sehr. Ich bin jeden tag hier, ich sehe was du sagst und im gegensatz zu den meisten anderen postern halte ich was auf deine meinung. Warum? wes ick nich! Be cool Darkster!

  • http://www.slamonline.com/online/category/blogs/fear/ Freedom Fries

    Wirklich, es ist ja ausgezeichnet !
