N.Y. Post column on Kobe

The New York Post takes the Lakers beat reporters to task today for failing to report a bunch of stuff we have reported here and there over the last few seasons about Kobe Bryant’s lack of practice time with the team and about his surgically-repaired right knee. The Post quotes Bryant as saying the knee cartilage is so damaged that it’s almost bone-on-bone. Fair enough, That bit is actually something newsworthy. So full marks for that.

UPDATE: Bryant had this to say after the Lakers’ victory over the New Orleans Hornets tonight, “Do I look worried? Did we win last year? My knee last year was the size of a balloon and we still won, so I’m not concerned about it. We’ve just got to be smart and pace things out. It’s just listening to your body and I do a pretty good job of that.”
