Kobe Tears Achilles

Bryant’s injury occured with 3:08 remaining in the fourth quarter.

In a season that has been marred with turmoil and injury, the lake show was handed the most crushing news of all.

After falling to the floor late in the fourth quarter, the Lakers were not severely concerned about their superstar. Bryant is one of the toughest players in the league and constantly plays through injuries, but when they saw him grimace they knew they had a problem. Bryant tore his Achilles tendon in his left leg and had surgery Saturday afternoon. He is expected to miss 6-9 months and has a huge rehab process in his future. Kobe was averaging 27 points, 6 assists and 6 rebounds a game and was putting the Lakers on his back to get to the playoffs. The Lakers are 43-37 and have a one game lead over Utah for the 8th and final spot in the Western Conference playoffs. Although this is a major injury, you would be an idiot to not expect Kobe to come back strong next season.

Kobe was averaging 27 points, 6 assists and 6 rebounds before his injury.

Now that Bryant is done with an injury, the Lakers are Dwight Howard’s team.
