[new_royalslider id=”125″]

As expected for quite some time now, Kobe Bryant was ruled out for the rest of the season, due to his fractured knee.

Lakers trainer Gary Vitti has said he expects Bryant to return to 100 percent, and Bryant himself has already commented on missing the rest of the season.

Bryant is also one of the most well-respected players in the league, so many players will be asked about his injury and recovery. Clippers point guard Chris Paul spoke to ESPN’s Arash Markazi about what he expects from Bryant:

Bryant’s determination and work ethic is well-known throughout the league. Paul is also known as a fierce competitor so there is a mutual respect between the two.

Even though the Clippers have turned into a rival for the Lakers, Paul is still aware of the impact that Bryant has on the entire NBA:

No one doubts that Bryant will work harder than anyone to get back to where he needs to be for next season. He is looking to exact revenge on the entire NBA when he returns.

That fact is not lost on anyone, including his biggest rivals.
