There is trouble in Tinseltown as preliminary reports show that Kobe Bryant has torn his left Achilles tendon Friday night late in the fourth quarter against the Golden State Warriors. The Lakers did rally without Kobe to win 118-116 without their legendary star to keep hold of the 8th seed in the Western Conference. L.A maintains a one game lead over Utah Jazz with two the play; but can the Lakers win the remaining two games to make the playoffs and without Kobe, and if they do does it really matter now. The Black Mamba is gone, Mamba never misses games.
Take a look: Kobe finished the night 34pts 5rbs 4ast.
Could this be the demise of Kobe Bean Bryant? The Achilles is one of the toughest injuries ever to come back from. If it is an Achilles injury it will take at least a year. MRI is plan for tomorrow. Prayer is sent to you Mr. Bryant.
