As the season opener draws near, we just want to take a brief moment of your valuable time to remind you how fragile Kobe Bryant’s body will be this season.
Below is a chart mapping virtually all of Black Mambas injuries throughout his career. You’ll note that many injuries occurred several times. Not only does this illustrate how indestructible he appears to be, but it should also give you a filtered focus on what to expect from him this season. And maybe even next season?
This isn’t to create an air of negative energy, but more like a realistic measurement tool, that should be used to gauge the amount of actuality needed to enjoy the upcoming season as a Laker fan.
You’ll also note on the chart below that his rotator cuff injury isn’t mentioned.
