Kobe Bryant Officially Out For The Season; Rips Upper Management
It’s official, Kobe Bryant is out for the rest of this season according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard.
He’s had a rough season so far after recovering from a torn Achilles suffered in last years playoffs before returning for six games then a fracture of his lateral tibial plateau in his left knee.
The team has no chance at the playoffs with a 22-42 record, and with Kobe’s age they may not want to try to chance another injury to their star player.
He recently ripped management about the lost season.
“Oh, yeah, let’s just play next year and let’s just suck again. No. Absolutely not,” he said. “It’s my job to go out there on the court and perform, no excuses for it. Right? You’ve got to get things done. Same thing with the front office. The same expectations they have of me when I perform on the court, it’s the same expectations I have for them up there.”
“How can I be satisfied with it? We’re like 100 games under .500. I can’t be satisfied with that at all,” Bryant said. “This is not what we stand for, this is not what we play for.”
“That’s how it was explained to me by Jerry [West] and all the other great Lakers that have played here. That’s just how it is,” he said.
Kobe is looking to win quickly before his career comes to an end. Who do you think will make the team better.
