Here are a couple of items about Kobe Bryant, one minor and one not so much.
First and foremost, Bryant said he went through today’s practice without suffering any pain in the left knee he tweaked during the Lakers’ victory Tuesday over the Oklahoma City Thunder. He also said of his knee, “It’s good. No problems. I feel fine.”
Also, Bryant continues to be the overall leader in All-Star voting by the fans, outpacing James by 1,380,383 to 1,315,292 in the latest balloting update released by the league. Additionally, Andrew Bynum was second to Phoenix’s Amare Stoudemire among centers in the Western Conference.
