Last season Kobe Bryant had one of his toughest seasons as a professional. Bryant was plagued with many injuries that left him hobbled for much of the season. Even in the post-season Bryant felt the effects of his injuries, as he continued to put more and more miles on his body.
After an off-season of relaxation, which for Bryant means grueling work out sessions, many thought that Bryant was healthy and good to go entering the season. It seems that those thoughts may have been a bit premature, as reports are stating that Bryant is struggling with a knee injury once again. According to Bryant he is feeling the pain that comes from ‘bone on bone,’ which is an alarming statement for the Lakers.
When you consider the recent trouble that Portland Trail Blazers All-Star Brandon Roy has gone through with his knees, there is certainly a high possibility of trouble for Bryant and the Lakers.
However, in typical Bryant fashion, when asked about his future and his health he stated, ““I have four seasons left on my contract.”
