10 Reasons Why Kobe Bryant Will (or Won't) Be Close to Great Again Image via USA Today Sports

He's the last of a dying breed.

He blew his Achilles' and made a free-throw. He cracked a bone in his leg and still stayed in the game. Kobe's tough. He also has a hatred for his opponents like Michael Jordan did. He's on Twitter now, he sees the slander, he sees the doubt. Best believe he'll be back whether the season is lost for the Lakers or not. He's a throwback from a different era, an era where guys earned their salary. Plus, he's chasing history. Kobe is currently No. 4 on the all-time scoring list and sits jus 592 points behind his idol Michael Jordan. Knowing Kobe he'll come back to grab the No. 3 spot for himself then retire the night after. -Angel Diaz
