    April 18, 2013

      The joke practically writes itself. “Kobe Bryant’s only Achilles’ heel is his Achilles’ heel!” As an NBA fan, you should probably think about Kobe Bryant’s season-ending injury in a more thoughtful context.  What if Bryant never plays again?  What if his injury, suffered on Friday night, ends the Los Angeles Lakers’ legend’s career?  It would be quite the shame for it to end like this.
