Holy s**t. I had no idea I would be watching Kobe Bryant's final game tonight.

After a torn Achilles though, it's over. What a career. Nothing but the greatest respect for one of the greatest.

C'mon man. Arguably, nobody in the history of the NBA has worked harder than Kobe. Nobody. While he's already on the downside of his career, the guy will come back and play.
I dunno!? Kobe was already saying he may retire after next season. A torn achillies takes a long while to heal, and even when it does it takes time like with Dwight(different injury)to get back into form. If he has to sit out half the year next year, will it be worth it? You can't question Kobe's desire, but he said he was already fed up with the grind every offseason and now he has to grind through just to get rehabilitated. I just remember Memo Okur tearing his in the playoffs and he tried to come back to no avail.

You just compared Mehmet Okur to Kobe f**king Bryant.
If this is it for Kobe, it's fitting. He went balls to the wall until he just...broke. It isn't ceremonious, but I can't think of a more appropriate ending.

He was referred to as Memo here and no I didn't. I compared injuries.

I don't think he's done. No way. He goes out on his terms. When he says he's done.

Touche' but I don't see what you're getting at. I didn't compare their playing abilities. A torn achillies is a torn achillies. I guess there is a diff. between a ruptured and a torn? Still a big injury if I'm not mistaken.

This won't be it for him. He was having such a great season...there is no way he was going to retire after next season.

I don't know if any other coach would have let Kobe play 48 minutes a game. He should have given him 5 minutes of rest in each half.
