Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant is one of the most durable players in the league today. He's managed to thrive under pain and injury and will do so again Friday night. After going down with a sprained left ankle which was labelled "severe", many believed Bryant would miss game time, at least a couple of games. The Black Mamba and the Lakers have other plans...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- When Kobe Bryant couldn't be the tough guy on the court Friday night, he resorted to being an MVP coach.
After hobbling around on a severely sprained left ankle for 12 minutes, Bryant retreated to the bench, where he spent the rest of the night contesting calls, waving teammates into the right spots and even drawing something up on a clipboard for Dwight...

Losing to the Lakers without Kobe (well, 12 minutes of ineffective Kobe) and Pau Gasol -- at home, mind you -- has to equal the Pacers' worst loss of the season. Even worse than the Miami game a few nights ago.
When I heard Kobe was going to play, I actually thought it would be a good thing for the Pacers. Surely he would not be 100% and might try to do too much, which would...
