as long and illustrious as Kobe's career has been, and as much as he's done prior to 2013, I feel like the end of his career has been robbed from him.
comes back after christmas,
plays 6 games,
plays too strong.
needs to start taking games off.
Doesn't play when Freeze goes to cali to sit courtside to watch lakers/blazers.
Pisses Freeze off.
But he understands.
Then kobe comes back.
Plays a game here.
Plays a game there.
Then goes for dunk in new orleans games.
As much as I hate kobe, I can relate, as a Rose fan
exactly, you get it 100 percent. Rose was definitely robbed of the peak of his prime. That's not to say he doesnt still have a chance to not be sweet, but clearly his body is made differently than a westbrook in that russ could just bounce back from a torn knee and multiple surgeries. Son looks like he's never been hurt. Rose looks like a shell of what was and what could've been. it sucks so bad.
I don't think enough emphasis is placed on the value of health. We always gas up skills and talents, but the ability to stay healthy longterm is the most valuable asset.
