Flu-like symptoms won't prevent Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant from playing Tuesday night against the Indiana Pacers. "He told me it's not going to bother him ...

Kobe Bryant is no Jack Taylor

Last night, Kobe Bryant scored over half his team’s points (40) and reached a triple double.  No, not the good kind of triple double…the kind where you also have 10 turnovers.  An absurd line of 40/10/3/3 with 5 3PM, 12-28 FG, 11-13 FT, and the aforementioned 10 turnovers.  You’ll live with the high TO’s but the Lakers can’t.  In a night of high profile college basketball...
